Responsible Management Education: Fighting global poverty as a challenge for business and management education - Professor Carole Parkes
As the UN global initiative Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) reaches its first decade, UN Special Adviser for PRME, Professor Carole Parkes, will address its stated goal to develop the capabilities of students to be generators of sustainable value for a more inclusive global economy, through teaching, research, engagement and organisational practices.
Fighting poverty is number one in the Sustainable Development Goals and it presents a big challenge to all management education stakeholders to provide students with opportunities to study poverty-related issues. The challenge is to institutionalise responsible management education’s promise to help shape the mind-sets of the next generation of business professionals.
