The Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) and the United Nations Global Compact

The School of Business, Economics and Law has signed up to the PRME initiative and the UN Global Compact. We are dedicated to contribute to a sustainable world and we enable this through our teaching of the next generation of economists, business leaders and lawyers. We collaborate with our partner companies and with our community at large. Research at the school aims at solving pressing sustainability related issues, both global and local and our researchers have important policy impact.


The PRME initiative is to inspire and champion responsible management education, research thought leadership globally. The PRME are inspired by values such as the principles of the United Nations Global Compact. They seek to establish a process of continuous improvement among institutions of management education in order to develop a new generation of business leaders capable of managing the complex challenges faced by business and society in the 21st century.
