Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME)

Stockholm Business School has signed on to the Principles for Responsible Management Education. The PRME initiative is the first organised relationship between the United Nations and management-related academic institutions, business schools and universities and was launched in 2007. The mission of PRME is to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally.

Signing on to the PRME implies our willingness to progress in the implementation of the following principles:

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 value 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 cooperations 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 dialogue and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organisations and other interested groups and stakeholders (such as non-governmental organizations) on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
