PRME, the UN Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals
This chapter offers an overview of the UN Global Compact, the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The chapter identifies the role of business in tackling issues facing the world today and singles out business management students (in their capacity as future business leaders, global citizens and employees of business organisations) as playing a key role in driving forward the sustainability agenda in general, and responsible business management practices in particular. Business management students are an integral part of future business decision-making. To this end, universities in general and business schools in particular are pivotal players with a unique role of equipping business graduates with skills to tackle the ethical and sustainability challenges facing the world today and in years to come.
