NEW YORK, June 2, 2015 /CNW/ - The 2015 Global Forum for Responsible Management Education - 6th PRME Assembly, hosted by the PRME Secretariat of the UN Global Compact Office, will be held June 23-25, 2015 in New York bringing together leaders in academia, business, government and civil society, to discuss and identify best practices for integrating sustainability and responsibility into management education. The PRME initiative facilitates organizational change, inspiring and recognizing higher education institutions that embed corporate responsibility and sustainability into their curricula - thereby producing business leaders equipped to manage the complex challenges facing business and society. This year a key discussion point will be the involvement of business and management education in contributing to the forthcoming UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Since its launch in 2007, 600+ institutions have signed up to PRME, including the University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business who have successfully integrated sustainability into project courses where students can apply what they have learnt in innovative ways:
"At the Haas School of Business, students are not just learning about the issues (e.g. with our Global Megatrends course) but are also exploring, testing, and even putting into place innovative solutions to the world's business challenges, through, for example, our "Intrapreneurship for Sustainability" course." - Christina Meinberg, Associate Director - Center for Responsible Business, University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business, USA
