Our commitment to the United Nation's Global Compact
The UN's Global Compact encourages businesses and academic institutions worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies. The UN Global Compact is a principle-based framework for businesses, stating ten principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption. These principles led to the development of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), a global platform to encourage responsible management education. We are both champions and signatories to the PRME initiative.
