The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is a United Nations-supported initiative that is committed to raising the profile of sustainability in business and management education. A voluntary initiative with more than 800 signatories worldwide, PRME is recognised as the largest organised relationship between the United Nations and management-related higher education institutions and seeks to equip today’s business students with the understanding and skills necessary to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through business.

PRME Champions are dedicated to contributing to thought and action leadership on responsible management education in relation to the United Nations sustainable development agenda. As one of 47 global PRME Champion, and the only named institution in Scotland, the School commits to working collaboratively to achieve higher levels of performance in transforming business and management education across the five key areas of curricula, research, educational frameworks, sustainability-based partnerships, and thought leadership, while serving the broader PRME community through active engagement with existing PRME Chapters, PRME Working Groups, SIP Reporting and other global opportunities, and contributing to broader UN goals and issues.

This is an exciting opportunity for the School, strengthening existing efforts to drive collective societal impact through business.
Some benefits of this partnership include:

  • Being recognised as a thought and/or action leader in the responsible management education community
  • Being recognised as a role model and pioneer in sharing information on progress and contributing good examples of institutionalized and transformational sustainability practices
  • Serving as a role model for the PRME community locally, regionally, and globally by engaging and supporting local businesses and peer institutions
  • Engaging in PRME Chapters/Working Groups and providing strategic advice to the PRME Secretariat
  • Receiving preferential access for students to UN Global Compact opportunities, including internships and volunteer opportunities with the PRIME Secretariat and the UN Global Compact, as well as PRME related student competitions and events such as those hosted by PRME Global Students.
