UN Conference on Principles for Responsible Management Education at the MCI

Document establishing the United Nations PRME Chapter for the German-speaking countries official signed

Management Center Innsbruck was recently the venue for a successful international UN conference. The Entrepreneurial School® hosted the high-level United Nations Global Compact Conference on Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). The conference also involved the official launch of a PRME chapter for the German-speaking countries.

The signatory act was performed in the presence of numerous speakers and participants from all over the world by Jonas Haertle, Head of the PRME Secretariat at the UN Global Compact Office in New York, Jürg Kessler, Rector of HTW Chur, Ulrich Jautz, Dean of the University of Pforzheim, and Andreas Altmann, Rector of MCI Management Center Innsbruck.

The conference focussed on the six Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), which were developed in 2007 by an international group of university rectors and presidents of leading business schools and academic institutions under the coordination of the UN Global Compact Office of the United Nations.

The objective of the PRME initiative is to inspire and champion responsible management education and research worldwide, and assume a pioneering role and establish the demanding principles as the international standard. The MCI was entrusted with the task of hosting the launch conference for the German-speaking world on the basis of its exemplary activities over the last few years.
