PRME is the largest voluntary engagement platform for academic institutions to transform their teaching, research, and thought leadership in support of universal values of sustainability, responsibility, and ethics.

PRME provides a strong analytical framework as well as a network for academics and peers working with sustainability. It has a disciplinary effect and is a source of inspiration. We value the openness and willingness to share ideas and best practice between fellow signatories.

Working through Six Principles, PRME engages business and management schools to ensure they provide future leaders with the skills needed to balance economic and sustainability goals, while drawing attention to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aligning academic institutions with the work of the UN Global Compact.

“Over the past 75 years, BI has given thousands of graduates the possibility to pursue attractive careers. The key factor has always been educational programmes that are up to date and relevant for the actual needs in business. BI is an institution with significant impact on societal development. This implies a responsibility to push agendas and spearhead important changes in society”,

says President Inge Jan Henjesand.

Over the next few years, BI will focus on updating and renewing our programme portfolio and developing new programmes for the future. Feedback from both students and employers recruiting business graduates indicates a clear expectation of students gaining knowledge and developing skills needed to operate in a sustainable, international and digital context.
