VŠE has become a Member of the PRME Initiative

20 Apr

The University of Economics, Prague became a member of the PRME Initiative (Principles for Responsible Management Education). The PRME Initiative is the first organized relationship between the United Nations and management-related academic institutions, business schools, and universities.

Launched at the 2007 UN Global Compact Leaders Summit in Geneva, the Principles provide an engagement framework for academic institutions to advance corporate sustainability and social responsibility through the incorporation of universal values into curricula and research. To date, over 500 leading business schools and management-related academic institutions from more than 80 countries across the world are signatories of PRME. More than a third of the Financial Times top 100 business schools participate in PRME.

By adopting the Six Principles the participating institutions have pledged to engage in a continuous process of improvement with regards to the application of the Principles, to share information on progress regularly, and to contribute to the learning experience of the academic institutions participating in the global PRME community.
