The representatives of PRME Champion institutions, who convened at a special event of the Global Compact Leaders Summit 2013, made commitments to work collaboratively to develop and promote activities that address shared barriers to making responsible management education a reality.

IILM Dean Academics Professor Rakesh Chaudhry, attending the launch event, noted that "IILM is pleased to be counted among the global leaders asked to lead this important work. Our selection as a PRME Champion reinforces our commitment to preparing responsible leaders."

With a view to help achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) - which include many targets which are set to expire in 2015 - Under-Secretary-General Takasu said: "[The United Nations] are engaging with a wide range of stakeholders to explore future development priorities. In the Post-2015 era, business schools and higher education institutions have a critical role to play as well."
