WFI Progress Report on the Principles for Responsible Management (PRME)

The Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) are the official ethics document of the United Nations for responsible academic education for future leaders in business. A network of universities committed to the PRME has formed, of which WFI has been a member for a number of years now. In this context, we issue a progress report on the implementation of the PRME every two years. We have now completed the current progress report, which covers the period beginning in August 2017.

We are happy to present to you our activities to date and our plans for the future. During the reporting period, we have rooted topics of global social responsibility and sustainability more firmly in our degree programs and in our research and transfer activities, for example by founding the KU Research Institute for Business and Economics in Service of Humanity (BESH) or by launching the project “Mensch in Bewegung”. Thanks to new cooperations, we have developed innovative forms of teaching, for example by bringing together students and socially committed start-up companies in a new cooperation with the Bayer Cares Foundation and by participating in the nationwide school competition "YES - Young Economic Summit".

Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments you might have about our current activities or future plans! We are looking forward to our continued work in implementing the PRME in research, teaching, academic self-governance, and in our activities with partners and the public.
