PRME: Principles for Responsible Management Education
SSE signed up to the United Nations' "Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME)" in 2013. The overarching goal is to contribute to the sustainable development of business and society with a global perspective, by disseminating knowledge and educating future leaders. We work on integrating the principles in different areas of the School in a holistic manner and have established several programmes and partnerships. Read about the initiative, related activities and our "Sharing Information on Progress" (SIP) Reports here.
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. In addition to reflecting on the principles, they set two-year goals.
Related to principles 4 and 5, Misum pools increased interdisciplinary research on sustainable finance, markets and innovation and collaboration with other academic institutions and a variety of private and public stakeholders.
