Inspiring and championing responsible management education

Cambridge Judge Business School has signed up to the PRME initiative

Cambridge Judge Business School is pleased to announce that it has signed up to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) – an initiative aimed at inspiring and championing management education, research and thought leadership globally.

Inspired by internationally accepted values, such as the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, the PRME has put in place a guiding framework for business schools and universities to adhere to in order to establish a process of continuous improvement and develop a new generation of business leaders. The six principles are:

  • Purpose
  • Values
  • Method
  • Research
  • Partnership
  • Dialogue

Cambridge Judge Business School made the decision to sign up to the initiative so it could demonstrate to its students, staff and business partners that it is committed to understanding and acting responsibly on issues relating to sustainability, as well as the broader issues of responsible management.

The School has already started to lead in the area of responsible management as it runs a large number of elective modules, research and student projects focussing on areas such as energy, climate, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and innovation for the poor and disenfranchised groups. Furthermore, an elective module or ‘concentration’ in energy and environment is available on the MBA programme and Executive Education has already run five programmes as requested by clients on CSR, climate change, natural resources and the UN.

Professor Christoph Loch, Director of Cambridge Judge Business School, commented:

Cambridge Judge Business School is very happy to support the PRME initiative. A large number of our faculty work already research in the areas covered by the initiative and we regard education in responsible management as integral to our School philosophy. We look forward to being part of the PRME community and being challenged to continuously deepen our commitment to developing responsible managers and responsible management thinking.”
