Westminster Business School signs UN Principles for Responsible Management Education
5 February 2016
The mission of Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is to champion responsible management education, with the aim to foster future business leaders equipped to work for a more inclusive and sustainable global economy. Westminster Business School was accepted to join PRME as a signatory because it embeds corporate social responsibility and green thinking into all of its activities, including programme curricula.
In addition to the specialist short course in Ethical Leadership, modules like Strategic Management, Sustainable Supply and Procurement, and Managing Diversity and Equality in Employment are already on offer at all levels of study and require students to implement sustainable and ethical practices. MBA students taking the Social Entrepreneurship module are also able to spend two weeks in a developing country working with local charities and getting first-hand experience of some of the issues in the field.
