Graziadio School Adopts Principles for Responsible Management Education
The Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University has responded to the global call for business schools and academic associations to advance corporate social responsibility worldwide. The school has committed to adhere to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), which were unveiled by a group of scholars and leading academic organizations at the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit in July 2007.
"PRME complements our mission to develop values-centered leaders for contemporary business practice and the traditions of a Christian university," says Linda Livingstone, dean of the Graziadio School.
An international task force of 60 deans, university presidents, and official representatives of leading business schools came together to create the initiative, which is based on six principles: purpose, values, method, research, partnership, and dialogue. The framework is meant to guide a school's effort to continuously improve curricula and research with regard to issues of corporate citizenship and sustainability. The PRME do not substitute for existing accreditation and quality assurance systems.
