On December 4th 2009, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution articulating the views of UN Member States on the rapidly evolving relationship between the United Nations and global partnerships. For the first time the General Assembly of the UN, in its sixty-fourth Session, Second Committee(Economic and Financial Committee), Agenda item 59, has taken “note of the Principles for Responsible Management Education initiative(PRME), which seeks to embed corporate responsibility principles in business school curricula and research.” This recognition emphasizes the importance PRME has in pushing forward the United Nations agenda within management education, and the value created by embedding corporate responsibility into business school curricula and research. It also implies that, from now on, the PRME is formally and officially a UN-supported initiative, by virtue of the decision made by the member States participating in the United Nations.
