Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME)

Louvain-La-Neuve, Mons


The mission of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative is to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally.

The PRME are inspired by internationally accepted 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.

In the current academic environment, corporate responsibility and sustainability have entered but not yet become embedded in the mainstream of business-related education. The PRME are therefore a timely global call for business schools and universities worldwide to gradually adapt their curricula, research, teaching methodologies and institutional strategies to the new business challenges and opportunities.

Taking the Six Principles as a guiding framework, any institution which is willing to integrate corporate responsibility and sustainability in a gradual but systemic manner is welcome to join the initiative.

By the adoption of those principles, our School objective is to 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. We try as much as possible to incorporate into our academic activities and curricula the values of global social responsibility by offering educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.

This is notably done through different courses related to Corporate Social Responsibility and the launch of the Philippe de Woot Award for the best Master project-thesis on CSR.
