There are over 16,000 business and management programs worldwide. Organisations that join PRME are expressing their conviction that higher education institutions integrating universal values into curriculum and research can contribute to a more sustainable and inclusive global economy, and help build more prosperous societies.
- PRME is the largest voluntary engagement platform for academic institutions to transform their teaching, research, and thought leadership in support of universal values of sustainability, responsibility, and ethics.
- Institutions distinguish themselves as leaders of responsible management education, and gain recognition for their efforts to address United Nations-supported values.
- Faculty and administrators from PRME Signatory Members gain access to dynamic local and global learning communities that collaborate on projects and events addressing the complex challenges facing business and society in the 21st century.
- Students that are sensitized to sustainability values are in high demand among leading international businesses and organizations.
- Communicate to your stakeholders — faculty, peers, students, businesses, and partners — about achievements through the Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) report.
