The 6th PRME Asia Forum was organized by Goa Institute of Management at Goa, India on 27-28 November 2015. It was preceded by a one-day workshop on Teaching Responsible Management. The Forum was focused on the theme of integrating Responsible Management Education (RME) into the curriculum of business schools. It was an opportunity for business schools to share the various curricular and co-curricular interventions introduced to promote responsible management education. The Forum was supported by the following sponsors: ABB India, Ambuja Cement, Britannia, Emerson India and TVS Group.
The event featured a workshop which instructed teachers from Asian business schools with ideas about how they could inculcate sensitivity to society and environment. Outcomes from this workshop include tactics for convincing students in the importance of responsible management, and engaging capabilities and values needed for the future we want, as well as promoting responsible decision making at all levels.
The Forum explored why and how responsible management education could be integrated into the curriculum of business schools. Key takeaways include:
- Future economic growth was likely to be concentrated in India and China, which would result in these countries monopolizing energy and water usage.
- The need to embed sustainability into business strategies in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
- Business school empowerment of students and a “sustainability mind-set”
