Session A-3: Integrating the UN Global Compact into Management Education to Advance the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals

This session welcomes contributions focused on the role that management education could/should play in helping business to go beyond the bottom line and integrate the UN Global Compact into business practice that would support the advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The contributions are expected to address different aspects of responsible management education, as per the six principles of PRME (purpose, values, methods, research, partnerships, dialogue) and the role they could play in redefining success in both business practice and management education. What are the main challenges related to the creation and implementation of the new intellectual, research, educational and institutional agendas to support the integration of the UN Global Compact and advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals? What are the lessons learned from good practices and inspirational solutions? What are the new opportunities that could be taken at the level of individual schools, group of schools and/or through collaboration within the PRME community as a whole, including with the respective stakeholders?
