The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), an initiative of the United Nations Global Compact, has selected Conestoga’s School of Business to join the 2023 cycle of PRME Champions -- an elite group of nearly 50 international business schools.
Established in 2007, PRME represents a global network of over 800 signatory business schools and seeks to embed responsible management education and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) across business schools worldwide. Conestoga was one of the first Canadian colleges to join the initiative.
The 2023 PRME Champions will work collaboratively to transform management education in five key areas: curricula, research, educational frameworks, sustainability-based partnerships and knowledge exchange. Champions will also contribute to broader UN goals and issues and support realization of the SGD.
“The School of Business has worked hard to secure a solid foundation for PRME,” said Amy Gleiser, chair, School of Business, who will lead the initiative at Conestoga. “As PRME Champions we look forward to sharing best practices, growing our networks and inspiring other institutions.”
Among other activities, the 2023 PRME Champions will engage in The Impactful Five Project, a knowledge sharing and peer learning project with the aim of future-proofing higher education institutions with pedagogies and practices that inspire creativity and authenticity, and underpin sustainable development across all disciplines of business education.
The 2023 Champions will also participate in a series of workshops throughout the year to source, develop and implement innovative pedagogies, inspired by the Impactful Five Characteristics.
