Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME)

School of Business is committed to UN Sustainable Development goals

On this page

The School of Business became a signatory of Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in February 2020. As a new school that became autonomous only in 2019, we are proud to place PRME at the centre of our strategic development.

Working through Six Principles, PRME engages business and management schools to ensure they provide future leaders with the skills needed to balance economic and sustainability goals, while drawing attention to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aligning academic institutions with the work of the UN Global Compact.

PRME's vision is to realize the Sustainable Development Goals through responsible management education.

Commitment to PRME

UDSB’s new visionDeveloping innovative and responsible leadership for a sustainable future” was shaped and developed with our commitment to PRME and delivering positive societal impact at its core. It also reflects the University of Dundee’s core purpose of transforming lives, locally and globally through the creation, sharing and application of knowledge. We thus commit to advance the PRME Principles as well as UN SDGs within the School of Business and beyond and to regularly report on our progress.

At the School of Business, we believe that business schools can make a positive difference and that business can be a force for good in the society.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

As part of our commitment to advance the PRME Principles, we also commit to promote and work towards contributing to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are at the core of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, through our teaching, research, impact and operations.
