PRME Chapter Australia & New Zealand

The Australia & New Zealand (AUSNZ) region is a very active PRME Signatory base comprising a group of schools that are not only active within the global PRME network, but also actively engaged in pushing the agenda for responsible management education forward with a range of innovative approaches to support the realisation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The AUSNZ representation began with the initiation of the PRME in New York in 2008 with two business schools’ attendance and commitment to PRME signatory - LaTrobe (Victoria) and Griffith (Queensland). Since 2008 both of these business schools have promoted the PRME by being involved in the PRME global forums, being members of key advisory groups for the PRME Champions structures, developing international collaborations with other PRME business schools and promoting the PRME both domestically and internationally through conferences, events and speaking engagements.

The PRME Chapter Australia/New Zealand was endorsed as an Emerging Chapter by participants at the 2nd PRME Australia/New Zealand Forum, hosted by Griffith Business School (Australia) in 2012. We transitioned to an established Chapter in 2017 with a strong network signing the Memorandum of Understanding at the 5th AUSNZ PRME Forum held at Deakin University, Melbourne.

The Australian New Zealand Chapter has grown in 2024 to a network of 36 Australian and New Zealand Higher Education Institutions. Enabling university graduates to become effective citizens and active change agents is a key driver of this region’s higher education sector. The recognition that business schools play a major role in cross-sector collaboration to ensure we leave our world in a better place than what we found it drives our regions’ PRME passions and amplifies our commitment to responsible management education and values of sustainability and global responsibility.

Students studying in Australia and New Zealand come from across the globe. Large numbers of diverse cultures offer us rich exploration for teaching and learning but also numerous challenges in the way to tackle all 17 SDGs in the curriculum, research and partnerships. The PRME AUSNZ Chapter comes together as a community to share knowledge and ways. In the following section, we summarise some of these key collaborative efforts and partnerships at the local, national and international level.

The main activities of the Chapter include:

  • Strengthening responsible management education and PRME participation in the region.
  • Conducting community of practice events on key topics of interest for the chapter.
  • Advancing projects and priorities of the PRME secretariat.
  • Joining with the Australian Business Deans Council to advance collaborative initiatives.
  • Advancing PRME initiatives through joining events such as the ANZAM conference and ABEN conferences.
  • Supporting chapter signatories with information on PRME activities and priorities.
  • Research World Tour -Assisting Early Career Researchers in publication development in responsible management education.
