BMI, as a signatory of the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative, has published a new report
on the school’s achievements and further plans in bringing the PRME principles to life in its own programmes and activities.
“It’s common to hear our graduating students and alumni speak with pride of how the BMI community helps to promote a responsible and upstanding management culture. That reflects BMI’s mission of preparing high-level managers to be generators of sustainable value for business, society at large, and the global economy,” says BMI Director General Jaunius Pusvaškis.
The PRME initiative
, sponsored by the UN Global Compact, champions responsible management education, research, and thought leadership globally. It promotes principles inspired by internationally accepted values and provides an engagement structure for academic institutions to advance corporate sustainability by incorporating universal values into curricula and research.
BMI takes a stakeholder approach to sustainability and responsible leadership with emphasis on their three inter-dependent pillars: economic, environmental and social.
“We hold that responsible corporate behaviour requires personal integrity as well as up-to-date knowledge and skills. And we successfully foster a shared vision of responsible leadership in the BMI community of students, alumni, faculty and staff, which in fact is perceived as one of the hallmarks of the BMI brand,” BMI’s Director General notes.
