Responsible Management 2030

On behalf of the PRME Chapter DACH, we are delighted to announce the 3rd Responsible Management Education Research Conference that will take place on November 9 & 10, 2016 at the IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems, Austria.

Linking the Sustainable Development Goals and Management Education at Universities

Our planet faces massive economic, social, environmental and governance challenges. To address these, the “Agenda 2030” defines 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 related targets that represent an unprecedented opportunity to lead the world on a sustainable path. The challenges addressed in the SDGs also require integrated thinking, action and coordination at university level. Thus, the key objective of this conference is to create awareness for SDGs in management education and to discuss initiatives, methods and pioneering activities for including SDG-related issues in strategies, curricula and lectures.

In the course of the conference, there will be opportunity for

  • Intensive discussion of good practice examples as well as innovative teaching and learning methods, meeting the complex requirements of sustainable development.
  • In-depth dialog with academia, business and students about how to cope with future needs thereby uncovering the fundamental role of universities in shaping sustainable development.
  • Precise and detailed suggestions for cooperation of universities on key issues of integrating SDGs at institutional level, in teaching and research.
  • Interaction and personal networking with representatives of both PRME signatory and non-signatory business schools; universities committed to responsible management education; and business representatives responsible for the selection of new talent and of executive education.

This RME Conference is organised by the IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems, Austria in cooperation with the PRME Regional Chapter DACH. Please contact the organising committee at rme2016@fh-krems.ac.at with any questions.
