Principles for Responsible Management Education

The University of Sydney Business School became a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), in February 2016.

The vision is to systemically transform business and management education beyond the single-minded pursuit of profit maximisation towards more responsible management education, research and thought leadership, and partnerships.

Our third progress report 'From Narrative to Action' (pdf, 5.7MB), was submitted on 24 January 2022.

Our second progress report, 'Transforming management education beyond shareholder primacy' (pdf, 11MB), was submitted on 28 January 2020.

Our first progress report, 'Becoming an advocate for responsible management education' (pdf, 4.5MB), was submitted on 12 February 2018.

We will continue to use this platform to champion much-needed change and to transform the narrative of traditional business and management education in order to develop tomorrow's responsible business leaders.

Sustainable Development Goals

Our research, educational and extra-curricular activities have been linked to the seventeen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, to demonstrate the Business School's commitment to the initiatives mission as recorded in our second progress report (pdf, 11MB).
