The European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) is an international membership organization, based in Brussels, Belgium. With more than 650 member organizations from academia, business, public service and consultancy in 75 countries, EFMD provides a unique forum for information, research, networking and debate on innovation and best practice in management development.
EFMD is recognized globally as an accreditation body of quality in management education and has established accreditation services for business schools and business school programmes, corporate universities and technology-enhanced learning programmes.
Within its scope, EFMD is committed to offer professionals and institutions involved with management learning and organizational development the opportunity to be part of a dynamic, relevant and diverse network sharing the common objective of developing effective and socially responsible leaders and managers.
It is in this context that EFMD signed in 2003 a partnership agreement with the United Nations Global Compact and launched the Global Responsibility Invitation which in turn led to the creation of the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative.
