Events - Upcoming

IILM Second International Conference on “Responsible Management Education, Training and Practice”

IILM Institute for Higher Education will host its second international conference on “Responsible Management Education, Training and Practice”, in New Delhi, January 2015. The First International Conference on Responsible Management Education and Practice, in January 2014 set an important milestone in the journey of the IILM. 

IILM is committed to the Principles of Responsible Management Education in letter and spirit. IILM’s Vision states “IILM will be a leader in values based management education and business focused research”.

Values that stand out are:

(a) A deep commitment to sustainable development and a green environment,
(b) An appreciation of the cultural heritage and socio-economic diversity of India.As an institute we hope to take the case of responsible management in business schools across India.

The conference format of combining research and practice was based on a strong belief that research as a standalone activity cannot add value unless it is blended with practice and flows into teaching and learning. The format for the second conference has been revised to have the research papers on Day 1. Day 2 and 3 of the Conference will focus on the action agenda.

The second conference will be held on 8-10th January 2015 and will focus on the Proposed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN Global Compact.

For more information, see conference agenda here.

Save the Date – 2nd PRME Chapter Meeting Iberian (Spain & Portugal

We are pleased to announce that the 2nd Meeting of the emergent PRME Chapter Iberian (Spain and Portugal), will be held 10 February, 2015, from 10am to 6pm in Madrid, hosted by the Comillas Pontifical University.

The aim of this meeting is to promote discussion and adoption of PRME and UN Global Compact principles by academic institutions, and to share experiences with those that are already implementing them. The Principles of Responsible Management Education represent an explicit commitment of higher education institutions to play an important role by imparting management knowledge and skills to future leaders. Consequently, they have a strong influence in shaping the growth and development outcome of businesses. Moreover, higher universities and business schools should re-examine and reflect on their role given the current global challenges.

Spain and Portugal share a common background regarding education, culture and society. For that reason, the Regional Chapter for both countries relies on the idea of joining forces and coming together for the promotion of the PRME. The Chapter will focus on how high education institutions could be transformed in order to best contribute to the community development by creating future managers and leaders that are cognizant of the community welfare in which they operate and responsible to the needs of the community at large. 

All PRME signatories from Spain and Portugal are invited to share their experience with the attendants. Some concrete objective for the meeting are:

 

  • To identify measurement indicators for each PRME principle.
  • To articulate meetings with business practitioners in order to promote PRME jointly.
  • To study best practices about internal management and institutional policy focused on PRME implementation.
  • To create an inspirational guide about PRME implementation process arose from Spanish and Portuguese high education institution’s experience.

Future development of these projects will depend on the support obtained on the Second Meeting of the Chapter, where new ideas can also emerge from common interest and consensus based on realistic goals to strengthen the newly-formed Chapter.

Further program details will be provided shortly. Kindly register by 30 December 2014 to infocetic@cetic.upcomillas.es, along with your name, institutional affiliation and contact information.

Nos complace anunciar la convocatoria de la Segunda Reunión del Capítulo Emergente de PRME Ibérico (España y Portugal), que tendrá lugar el próximo 10 de febrero de 2015 en la Univesidad Pontificia Comillas, en Madrid, entre las 10 y las 18h. 

El objetivo del encuentro es promover el debate y la adopción de los PRME por parte de instituciones académicas de España y Portugal, así como compartir experiencias de las universidades y escuelas de negocios que ya han adoptado estos principios. La firma de los Principios para la la Educación de una Gestión Responsible (Principles of Responsible Management Education, por sus siglas en inglés), supone un compromiso explícito de las instituciones académicas de educación superior para impulsar una formación comprometida con una gestión más ética y responsable de las empresas en las que sus alumnos desarrollarán su carrera profesional.

La constitución de un Capítulo Regional específico para España y Portugal persigue aunar esfuerzos y trabajar juntos por la promoción de los PRME en las instituciones de ambos países, en un marco socio-cultural y educativo de características similares. Pretende identificar las transformaciones necesarias en sus respectivas instituciones educativas para dotar a empresarios y directivos de las competencias necesarias para responder a las necesidades y requerimientos de sus comunidades.

Todas las instituciones signatarias de los PRME en España y Portugal están invitadas a compartir sus experiencias con los asistentes a la reunión. Las diversas motivaciones, enfoques y grados de desarrollo servirán de inspiración para el resto de instituciones, signatarias o no, congregadas en este encuentro. Asimismo, se presentarán algunas propuestas de colaboración conjunta que podrían ser desarrolladas por parte de las universidades y escuelas de negocios interesadas, mediante la articulación de equipos de trabajo que arrojasen resultados para la implantación exitosa de los PRME en la región. Algunas iniciativas ya fueron propuestas en la primera reunion de este Capítulo Regional Emergente, celebrada en ESADE (Madrid) el pasado mes de Julio, e incluyen como objetivos preliminares:

a) La definición de indicadores de medición para cada uno de los PRME.

b) La articulación de encuentros con empresas pertenecientes a la Red Local de España y Portugal para implicarles en la promoción de los PRME.

c) El estudio de mejores prácticas sobre gestión interna y política institucional en las instituciones académicas para implantar los PRME.

d) La elaboración de una guía inspiracional sobre cómo implanter los PRME a partir de buenas prácticas compartidas por las instituciones académicas de España y Portugal.

La configuración de proyectos que desarrollen estas propuestas dependerá del apoyo que se consiga de los asistentes al encuentro, sin menoscabo de conseguir identificar nuevos proyectos que despierten aún mayor interés y consenso, con objetivos realistas y comedidos para esta fase inicial del capítulo, aun en estado “emergente”.

Para confirmar la asistencia, se ruega envien nombre, afiliación institucional e información de contacto a infocetic@cetic.upcomillas.es  antes del próximo 30 de diciembre. El prgrama de la jornada se hará llegar en breve.
