Responsible management education

NHH has decided to become a signatory to the UN initiative for responsible management education.

Master's student Siri Rygh Jerndahl works with the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education at NHH.

The UN has seen that business schools are educating the leaders and decision-makers of tomorrow which gives an unique position to educate and create an understanding for the responsibility decision-makers have towards the society and the environment. Therefore, they have developed six principles known as PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education).

By becoming a signatory, NHH commits to follow these principles. The principles relate to the organisation, the education, research and partnerships of NHH. NHH is one of few Nordic business school that have not signed yet, which makes it the right time to join this network. It also makes sense, as NHH already takes the responsibility of educating leaders of tomorrow and has many initiatives supporting this.

When signing the UN PRME, NHH makes a commitment to report on how we work with the six principles. Because of this, we have initiated a mapping process, where we want to get an overview of all the great activities NHH is currently doing and to discover potential improvement points.

Contact

We have hired Siri Rygh Jerndahl, a master's student who has previously worked with PRME at CBS during her bachelor's degree. She will coordinate the mapping process and will reach out to relevant persons to create the report. However, she will appreciate inputs on initiatives that come to your mind. You reach her at prme@nhh.no.
