Norwich Business School are pleased to introduce our 2020 PRME report.

Norwich Business School is proud to be a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (UN PRME).

We provide to more than 1000 students an education based on the interconnected role of business in a wider social context, with a focus on the need for responsible management approaches to secure a sustainable future. Responsible Business is a defining aspect of the School's strategy, and a common thread throughout our research activities.


PRME Principles:

We educate and research in responsible management through our application of the six PRME principles:

Principle 1 | Purpose: We will develop the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.

Principle 2 | Values: We will incorporate into our academic activities, curricula, and organisational practices the values of global social responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact.

Principle 3 | Method: We will create educational frameworks, materials, processes and an environment that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.

Principle 4 | Research: We will engage in conceptual and empirical research that advances our understanding of the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations in the creation of sustainable social, environmental and economic value.

Principle 5 | Partnership: We will interact with managers of business corporations to extend our knowledge of their challenges in meeting social and environmental responsibilities and to explore jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges.

Principle 6 | Dialogue: We will facilitate and support dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organisations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
