PRME: Principles for Responsible Management Education
SSE has signed up to the Principles of Responsible Management Education and publishes the report "Responsibility for Competitiveness".
To further strengthen and show its commitment to the process of integrating ethics, responsibility and sustainable development into all of SSE’s educational programs, and to make an existing and proven system our school’s tool, in 2013 the school became a signatory to PRME. This is the global United Nations initiative to inspire responsible management education, research and thought leadership. The idea of developing a principle-based global engagement platform for academic institutions follows from a recommendation by all academic stakeholders of the UN Global Compact and is a cooperation between the UN and the academic world.
As a signatory, SSE is involved in the ongoing process of implementing six principles of responsible management education, with the school filing its first PRME Sharing of Information Progress (SIP) report in July 2015. Operationally, Misum administers the SSE PRME effort.
PRME encourages business schools to examine their education and operations in relation to six principles – and report on these every two years. The six principles are: purpose, values, method, research, partnership and dialogue. As a key integrity measure, the SIP's main objective is to serve as a public vehicle for information on responsible management education. SSE’s first SIP report covers 2013 to 2015. In addition to reflecting on the principles, it sets two-year goals. SSE is currently working on its second report, due in mid-2017, reporting on progress and identifying further goals.
The Stockholm School of Economics submitted its first Sharing Information Progress (SIP) report for the period 2013-2015 to the PRME Secretariat. In the report, Misum is highlighted as having an important mission to ensure that sustainability research is integrated throughout SSE educational programs and has a wider outreach to society stakeholders. All SSE programs (BSc, Msc, MBA Executive Format and PhD) now either have mandatory courses in Corporate Responsibility or clearly articulated integrated sessions in all courses.
