UN Principles for Responsible Management Education

PRIME_logo-1

London School of Management Education (LSME) became a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in September 2017 and since then it has been advancing the values of sustainability, responsibility and ethics in teaching, research and thought leadership.

The Seven Principles

Preamble

As institutions of higher education, we prepare people to serve society and safeguard our planet with their work in and for organizations. Grounded in the principles of sustainable development, we believe that all people have the right to live with dignity and to meet their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. Responsible management education, therefore, seeks to develop people who will help their organizations create inclusive prosperity while promoting freedom, justice, and peace within regenerative and resilient natural ecosystems.

To be responsible is to be attentive to impact and time. Responsible decision makers look forward and back as they live in the moment. Looking ahead, they are responsible not just to current and future generations but to all life on the planet. Looking back, they are accountable for their actions, those taken and those avoided.

And so, with enthusiasm, we join a worldwide community of like-minded educational institutions to promote our aspirations, document our initiatives, share our lessons learned, and help each other address our challenges. By embracing these seven principles, we hope to inspire and enable a better world through responsible management practices.

LSME is proud to be a pioneer in our approach to Management Education. Since our inception in 2007, we have strived to provide superior development opportunities for all our students, with an emphasis on practical skills for the real-world challenges faced by managers in the world of work. We are committed to advancing values of sustainability, responsibility, and ethics in teaching, research and thought leadership in all aspects of our provision. We believe our results speak for themselves, the evidence being the significant contributions made by our ever-growing network of graduates, ready and able to take on stretching challenges in support of their organisations across the industry.

Alongside our strategic commitment to the principles of Responsible Research and Innovations (RRI) in education and research, on 24 September 2017 LSME became an advanced signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (UN PRME) which is a growing network of over 800 leading business schools from 80 countries around the world. These institutions align their provision, design and deliver relevant academic contents, implement projects, conduct research and do their daily business to the UN PRME, Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This has important implications for LSME and attainment of its vision.

LSME continues to be open to new ideas, new challenges and new horizons in making management education a transformative and powerful agent for change in society.
