We recognize that a coupling of sustainable stewardship and individual responsibility are essential for creating sustainable business.
Sustainable RSM is a branch of the Positive Change initiative in the business school, providing consultation and support; driving action and results along the themes sustainability, global social responsibilty and ethical behaviour. These are the core elements of the UN Principles of Responsible Management (PRME) initiative. Our teams design events, research effective learning tools, provide updates on school activities reflecting our commitment in these areas and sets KPIs, stimulates, and monitors positive change within the RSM community. We facilitate the creation of knowledge circles that bring together academics, alumni & students around a number of targeted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
RSM is actively committed to demonstrating and disseminating theories, models, and practices that reinforce the connection between sustainable environments and integrated value. Sustainable RSM provides direct experience in working groups for students to gain knowledge and skills in out-of-the-classroom projects, events and activities; practicing stewardship and responsibility.
The School infuses the central themes from the UN Global Compact’s Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) into its curriculum, co-curricular activities, and initiatives; sensitising mindsets to benefit society, the economy and the environment from the perspective that sustainability is the foundation of business. From enrolment in the first RSM course through achieving alumni status, students benefit from the integration of classroom education and out-of-class learning experiences on these targeted topics.
RSM’s primary focus is on developing business leaders with international careers who can become a force for positive change by carrying their innovative mindset into a sustainable future. Our first-class range of bachelor, master, MBA, PhD and executive programmes encourages active participation in exploring solutions to the world's grand challenges. RSM has adopted the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as a reference framework.
