In this way, EGADE Business School underscores its ongoing leadership in promoting business responsibility and sustainability in management education worldwide.
In a letter to the PRME Secretariat, Dean Horacio Arredondo of EGADE Business School expressed the school’s determination to engage actively in the programs of PRME Champions, which is currently celebrating its 10th anniversary.
"We uphold our commitment to the refreshed Seven Principles of PRME and assume the responsibility of implementing transformational actions to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in our curricula, research, and collaborations. We are open to sharing our learnings and challenges within the PRME Champions cohort, while seeking to learn from others to consolidate the future of our institution and demonstrate the impact of our sustainability efforts," Arredondo stated.
The mission of the PRME Champions cohort is to contribute to thought and action leadership on responsible management education in the context of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
Participation in this select group enables PRME signatories to stand out in the global responsible management education community, providing the opportunity to collaborate on innovative projects and serve as a sounding board for PRME, Global Compact, and the UN on timely issues.
As a PRME signatory, EGADE Business School forms part of a global network of institutions committed to developing future business leaders who are conscious of their impact on the world.
Christiane Molina, professor from the Department of Strategy and Leadership at EGADE Business School, is a member of the PRME Global Chapter Council, whose purpose is to support the development and impact of the PRME Regional Chapters worldwide.
Founded in 2007, PRME has become the leading United Nations-supported platform in raising the profile of sustainability in business schools across the globe while drawing attention to the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.
