Principles for Management of Responsible Education (PRME)

Birmingham Business School became signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Business Management (PRME) in 2017. The aim of PRME is to raise the profile of sustainability and equip today’s business and management students with the skills and knowledge to manage the challenges these bring in the future.

Our commitment to PRME continues, and its principles play a highly important role in the School’s mission to promote curiosity and thought leadership for responsible business across all of our world-class teaching and research activities.

The seven principles of PRME 

1. Purpose

We advance responsible management education to foster inclusive prosperity in a world of thriving ecosystems.

2. Values

We place organisational responsibility and accountability to society and the planet at the core of what we do. 

3. Teach

We transform our learning environments by integrating responsible management concepts and practices into our curriculum and pedagogy. 

4. Research

We study people, organisations, institutions, and the state of the world to inspire responsible management and education practice. 

5. Partner

We engage people from business, government, civil society, and academia to advance responsible and accountable management education and practice.

6. Practice

We adopt responsible and accountable management principles in our own governance and operations. 

7. Share

We share our successes and failures with each other to enable our collective learning and best live our common values and purpose.
