Students thinking about responsible management education


Kategorie: General

The PRME community gathered recently in Cologne, Germany for the 5th PRME Research Conference. The conference focused on Leadership Development for Advancing the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. Furthermore it was discussed how research and the management education community, in collaboration with other stakeholders, could best support the initiatives of the UN Global Compact and PRME that focus on responsible leadership development in order to advance the SDGs.

As part of the conference, students (or student teams) were invited to produce a two-minute video in which they present their views and ideas about “Responsible Management Education”. The videos explored what students felt their university should do, or what it is already doing, to embed responsible management education in courses, programs and extracurricular activities. The video competition was organised by six partner organisations from the PRME Chapter DACH region (Management Center Innsbruck, Cologne Business School, FHWien der WKW, Vienna University of Economics and Business, Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Chur and ZHAW School of Management and Law) with the aim of including authentic student voices from around the world. Dr. Daniela Ortiz, head of the CR4SME team at FHWien der WKW, was a member of the jury.

There were 26 video submissions from 80 participants in 9 countries and 4 continents. The winning team from Brazil, Fundacao Institute de Administracao as well the runner-up teams from Deakin University in Australia, the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Management Center Innsbruck, were also invited to attend the Event.
