MacEwan University School of Business is hosting the 1st PRME Canada Regional Meeting on June 11th and 12th, 2013, co-convened by the University of Guelph College of Management & Economics and the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University. The objective of this event is to create a forum for business academics to share experiences in teaching and research on the integration of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) into the curricula and scholarship of business schools.
How can business schools develop future leaders that support, promote and incorporate PRME into the mainstream business model? The theme of the conference emphasizes the need for integration “e3 = earth, education, economics”, with education being the critical factor in the equation.
PRME is the educational counter-part of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and is the framework to incorporate the ten UNGC principles into post-secondary business education. The UNGC is a policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption.
