BSBI joins United Nations education initiative
The Berlin School of Business and Innovation (BSBI) has signed up to join the United Nations – Principles for Responsible Management Education (UN-PRME) initiative.
BSBI has announced that it has become an official signatory of the United Nations – Principles for Responsible Management Education (UN-PRME) global initiative, a platform that raises awareness for sustainability in schools all over the world as well as helps business students to understand and implement economic, environmental, and social values.
Launched in 2007, the UN-PRME has over 650 signatories and is an initiative between the United Nations and higher education institutions that deliver business and management education.
The initiative hopes to foster learning and practices to form sustainable value for the natural environment and businesses.
BSBI to ‘embrace’ 6 founding United Nations education initiative values
By joining UN-PRME, BSBI will commit to embracing the six founding values of responsible management education: purpose, values, method, research, partnership, and dialogue.
The institution will also aim to support UN-PRME’s mission to achieve UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through this initiative.
Professor Kyriakos Kouveliotis, Provost and Chief Academic Officer of BSBI, said: “Our aim is to add more content and activities in our teaching around the issues central to this initiative.
“This will include introducing a new, more critical approach, to teaching and learning that focus on responsible management practices, as well as integrating these topics in our curriculum.”
BSBI believes that being part of the extensive UN-PRME network will help them transform business and management education, and develop responsible leaders for the future.
The institutions also hopes to gain access to wider networks and more guest speakers, who will share their professional experiences so the Berlin school’s students will have the opportunity to expand their network and advance their careers.
