The successful 4th PRME MENA Regional Forum, “Regional and Local Challenges for Responsible Management Education,” brought together almost 600 participants and over 550 more followed the forum via live stream.
As the Arab world is facing deep changes and difficult transitions, the PRME MENA Regional Forum highlighted the importance for business schools and universities on the South and East coast of the Mediterranean to implement the Principles for Responsible Management Education in classrooms through curriculum, research, dialogue and teaching, and to adapt their strategies to the new business challenges and opportunities.
Eminent representatives from government, academia, the private sector and the PRME community, presented at this forum.
Additionally, the 4th PRME MENA Regional Forum provided a space to further discuss the future of the PRME Chapter MENA, which was proposed and endorsed during the previous three PRME MENA Regional Fora (1st, 2nd and 3rd) taking place at the American University in Cairo; the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik; and the University of Dubai. As a result of these conversations, the PRME Chapter MENA has now become established under the coordination of America University in Cairo.
