Haas Releases First UN PRME Report

The Haas School has released its first progress report on the United Nations Principles on Responsible Management Education (UN PRME). The goal of UN PRME is to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally.

Haas was one of the first top-ranked business schools to sign on to UN PRME, in August 2012. Signatories commit to reporting publicly every two years on their progress against principles that include: being purposeful in developing students as future generators of sustainable value for business and society; engaging in research on the role of corporations in the creation of sustainable social, environmental, and economic value; and creating educational frameworks, materials, processes, and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.

“As PRME’s principles are very much aligned with our school’s culture and vision to develop path bending leaders, we see the reporting process as helping Berkeley-Haas to drive continual innovation,” says Dean Rich Lyons.

The Haas School’s inaugural report covers activities and achievements during the 2012-2013 academic year in the Full-time Berkeley MBA Program and identifies future objectives for furthering its progress.

Future plans and objectives outlined in the report include offering a new  “Social Lean LaunchPad” entrepreneurship course in the 2014-2015 academic year and developing plans to launch a “Valuing Women in Business Initiative” to provide research and teaching on the challenges confronting women in business.

PRME was established in 2007 as a global call for responsible management education. Since that time, 530 institutions of higher education from 80 counties around the world have signed the PRME initiative, including business schools, universities, and business associations.
