14 December 2016 | New York — The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and the student-driven international organization oikos have announced the formation of a new strategic partnership. Through a recently-signed Memorandum of Understanding, this partnership will support the development and promotion of the newly established oikos-PRME Research Hub.
As an online portal, the oikos-PRME Research Hub will allow users to share high-quality sustainability research in management education and economics among bachelors, masters and PhD students worldwide. The goal of the portal is to encourage more students to undertake sustainability-related research. Both PRME and oikos commit through the new MoU to promote the Research Hub and share its value across both networks.

Speaking for the PRME Secretariat, Jonas Haertle, Head of PRME, said this new partnership will further support PRME’s engagement with students and youth while encouraging users to acquire new ideas and skills through the oikos community.
“Business and management students at higher education institutions are more connected to one another through digital resources than ever before. The new oikos-PRME Research Hub will allow students across the world to share new research and thought leadership in the areas of business sustainability and ethics.”

Founded in 1987 at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, oikos comprises today more than 45 chapters at universities worldwide and around 1,000 active members with one joint mission: to integrate sustainability into education and research in management and economics.
