IPE Management School Paris is proud of being accepted by the United Nations’ PRiME Framework. The former Secretary General Kofi Annan initially introduced PRiME in the effort to further Higher Education with a particular focus on educating reflective managers, who are committed to sustainability.
The PRiME Framework addresses Six Principles to which participating Business Schools around the globe contribute. These Six Principles are:
· Business Schools’ Purpose (nurturing students’ ethical understandings);
· Values (building in of themes of social responsibility into all curricula);
· Methods (of teaching & learning to promote responsible action by students);
· Research (demonstrably addressing themes of social responsibility);
· Partnership (drawing appropriate lessons from corporate contacts concerning
meaning and substance of corporate responsibility);
· Dialogue (fruitful multi-stakeholder conversations on responsibility and
IPE Management has already implemented these principles into its curriculum and will support its accredited centres of studies around the globe to adopt these. IPE Management School Paris’s Directors’ firm intention is to be an active party in the PRiME process in the effort that its Higher Education continuously contributes to managers’ understanding that profitability needs to respect organisations’ contribution to society at the same level and that Corporate Social Responsibility is an essential and integral part of good corporate governance.
