Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME)



PRME

In 2011, Clark GSOM became a signatory to the United Nations' Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative, strengthening its commitment to education, research, and collaboration that fosters sustainable social, economic, and environmental change.

Our commitment to PRME remains strong, as today, GSOM is one of only seven PRME signatory business schools in Massachusetts.

The six PRME principles are infused throughout our business school activities and program curriculum.


The PRME Principles:

  • Principle 1 | Purpose: We will develop the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.
  • Principle 2 | Values: We will incorporate into our academic activities and curricula the values of global social responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact.
  • Principle 3 | Method: We will create educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.
  • Principle 4 | Research: We will engage in conceptual and empirical research that advances our understanding about the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations in the creation of sustainable social, environmental and economic value.
  • Principle 5 | Partnership: We will interact with managers of business corporations to extend our knowledge of their challenges in meeting social and environmental responsibilities and to explore jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges.
  • Principle 6 | Dialogue: We will facilitate and support dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organizations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
