The College of Business and Economics (COBE) at Boise State University became a signatory to the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in August 2016.
Launched at the 2007 UN Global Compact Leaders Summit in Geneva, the PRME initiative is the largest organized relationship between the United Nations and business schools. The mission of PRME is to transform management education, research and thought leadership globally. As a signatory, COBE students, faculty and staff gain access to dynamic local and global learning communities that collaborate on projects and events to address the complex challenges faced by business and society in the 21st century, including poverty, health and inclusion.
PRME aligns with and supports the college’s commitment to responsible business, including the Responsible Business Initiative (RBI), sponsored by Wells Fargo. In preparation for becoming a PRME signatory, we integrated the six PRME principles into our 2016 COBE Sustainability Report. As a signatory of PRME, COBE is well positioned to continue to integrate global social responsibility throughout its curriculum, research and community engagement efforts.
