Founded in 2007 as a platform to raise the profile of sustainability and responsible management in schools around the world, the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative has been a driving force for change since its conception.
Through the Six Principles of Purpose, Values, Methods, Research, Partnerships, and Dialogue, PRME engages business and management schools around the globe, ensuring that our future business leaders are equipped with the skills they require to balance organisational and societal requirements for economic and sustainable value. Two further key aims of the PRME initiative involve raising awareness of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aligning academic institutions with the work of the UN Global Compact.
XJTLU International Business School Suzhou became a PRME Signatory in 2013 and an Advanced Signatory in 2019. Our mission reinforces the School’s responsibility to promote societal sustainable development by strengthening our innovative learning and teaching model, our leading-edge research and our deep engagement with businesses and organisations.
The business school’s continuous development in this area is built upon the PRME initiative’s six key principles:
We are honoured to have had the opportunity to host four PRME Roundtable events in recent years, in addition to innovative and thought-provoking student events such as Climathon.
