The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is a United Nations supported initiative whose mission is to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally. The PRME were developed in 2007 by an international task force of sixty deans, university presidents and representatives of leading business schools and universities.
 
“Our world’s toughest challenges demand solutions that involve business. No sector alone can slow climate change or reverse biodiversity losses.  No single entity can end corruption, poverty and violence, or promote equality, especially for women,” said the Secretary-General. “Success depends on Governments, companies, investors, educators, activists and citizens. Together, we can foster peace and security, protect human rights and achieve sustainable development.”
