Inspirational Guide for the Implementation of PRME: Placing Sustainability at the Heart of Management Education
Since the inception of the United Nations Global Compact-sponsored initiative Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in 2007, there has been increased debate over how to adapt management education to best meet the demands of the 21st-century business environment. While consensus has been reached by the majority of globally focused management education institutions that sustainability must be incorporated into management education curricula, the relevant question is no longer why management education should change, but how. Although the PRME initiative is set to increase to 1,000 signatories by 2015, it is equally important for PRME to cultivate actively engaged participants. Therefore, the next step is for current participants to transition from a global learning community to an action community. For this purpose, the PRME Secretariat invited a small group of experts to coordinate an Inspirational Guide for the Implementation of PRME which was presented at the 3rd Global Forum for Responsible Management Education, in June 2012 in Rio de Janeiro. The Guide answers the most frequently asked questions concerning the implementation of PRME by highlighting real-world examples from the most engaged signatories.
