PRME - Principles for Responsible Management Education

PRME - Principles for Responsible Management Education


In June 2013 the IUBH School of Business and Management became a signatory in the international PRME - Principles of Responsible Management Education - network. Our school also joined the PRME D-A-CH chapter, launched by Universities representing Germany (D), Austria (A) and Switzerland (CH) in February 2014.

The PRME initiative was started in 2008 as part of the United Nations Compact. To date, more than 450 leading business schools as well as management related universities of higher education signed up to the PRME participation agreement.

As part of our application, we also summarized our activities and research completed to date that relates to the principles of PRME. These can be found in our school's listing on the PRME's website. IUBH faculty is actively engaged in focused teaching and research related to the six principles of PRME.

Our students are called upon to consider the global impact their future business decisions and activities might generate. As an institution of higher education involved in the development of current and future managers, IUBH School of Business and Management declares its willingness to report on progress related to the implementation of the following principles to all internal and external stakeholders.


The Principles for Responsible Management Education:

Principle 1 · Purpose

We will develop the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.

Principle 2 · Values

We will incorporate into our academic activities and curricula the values of global social responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact.

Principle 3 · Method

We will create educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.

Principle 4 · Research

We will engage in conceptual and empirical research that advances our understanding about the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations in the creation of sustainable social, environmental and economic value.

Principle 5 · Partnership

We will interact with managers of business corporations to extend our knowledge of their challenges in meeting social and environmental responsibilities and to explore jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges.

Principle 6 · Dialogue

We will facilitate and support dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organisations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
