Principles

We are committed to infusing the Triple Bottom Line (People, Planet & Profit) into the program as evidenced by our participation in PRME (Principals of Responsible Business Management). Developed in 2007, PRME is an initiative to promote and inspire responsible management education and research in academic institutions around the globe.

The Business Management program declares its willingness to progress in the implementation of the following principles:

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

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

Method: We will create educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership

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

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

Dialogue: We will facilitate and support dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, and civil society organizations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
