PRME Launches its 15th Regional Chapter: PRME Chapter France & Benelux

On 9-10 of November 2017, over 40 deans and representatives of Benelux and France business schools, universities and their stakeholders, gathered at Antwerp Management School and endorsed the creation of an emerging PRME Chapter France & Benelux. This Chapter will focus upon furthering sustainability within the educational sector through collaborative initiatives and sharing best practices.

Jonas Haertle, Head of PRME, said “it is encouraging the PRME Chapter France & Benelux — the 15th PRME Chapter — launched this year”, adding that “PRME Chapters play an important role supporting responsible management education and helping achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in a regional context.”

Collaboration in the Chapter will allow the participating business schools and management-related higher education institutions to jointly respond to regional challenges regarding sustainable development. By engaging with broader stakeholders, assessing their own CSR efforts and by sharing and developing common resources for teaching, research and outreach, the schools will be better able to lead change and create social impact.

The launch meeting was jointly organized by represetatives from each participating country and strongly supported by the schools listed below. For France it is the Conference des Grandes Ecoles (CGE), for Belgium it is Antwerp Management School (AMS) and for The Netherlands it is Maastricht School of Management (MSM) and Amsterdam School of International Business (AMSIB) together.

About CGE: a not-for-profit association of 223 public and private higher education institutions – engineering, business and other specialties schools – founded in 1973. CGE acts as a think tank, a do tank, a lobby and a collective label on post-master qualifications particularly.
