Business and management graduate students are invited to participate in an international study on responsible management. Please note that the survey closes on 30 May 2013.
The survey is an initiative by fellow PRME Signatory, Macquarie Graduate School of Management (Australia), and the PRME Secretariat, with the support of an advisory committee of PRME signatory institutions (Bentley University, IAE, China Europe International Business School, Euromed Management and Aston Business School). It aims to examine responsible management attitudes among business and management graduate students around the world. We are only requesting the participation of graduate students (not undergraduates).
As you may recall, we conducted an earlier survey 18 months, ago and the results of the previous study can be found here. We continue to run the survey with the goal of measuring global trends.
The survey does not intend to evaluate individual institutions, but rather to observe overall trends. Responses from students of PRME participating schools will be analysed against responses from many other academic institutions around the world, and the anonymous results will be presented at the 2013 PRME Summit - 5th Annual Assembly on 25-26 September 2013 in Bled, Slovenia (register here).
Please share the link(s) to the survey with your graduate students. To increase participation and social inclusion, this year we include 4 versions of the survey:
For further information, please email Dr. Debbie Haski-Leventhal (Debbie.Haski-Leventhal@mgsm.edu.au), lead researcher.
We appreciate your collaboration, and we look forward to sharing the results of this year’s survey with you in Bled!
