The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is a United Nations-supported initiative founded in 2007. PRME raises the profile of sustainability in business schools across the world and equips students with the understanding and ability to deliver change.

Nottingham Business School (NBS) is proud to be a PRME Champion for two consecutive terms due to its strategic commitment and leading work in responsible management education. As a PRME Champion, NBS has an ambition to contribute to thought and action leadership in line with the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). NBS shares its good practice examples and case studies to mainstream sustainable development in curriculum, research, partnerships, and operational activities globally. NBS’ work in sustainability and social responsibility has also been recognised by global accreditation bodies for business schools.

As a PRME Champion, we take our responsibility and commitment of demonstrating best practice in all aspects of education, research, and partnerships, as one of the most important pillars of our work. We hope to help inspire others to follow suit. This commitment to responsible education is part of the character of NBS, which has evolved over the last four decades. Our graduates have the capabilities to generate sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.

Professor Baback Yazdani, Executive Dean of Nottingham Business School

Nottingham Business School (NBS) has been working to mainstream sustainability and the SDGs in teaching and learning by following a three-tier approach: Mainstreaming, Broadening and Enriching. Mainstreaming of SDGs is through the compulsory capstone modules where experiential learning is key and broadening of the SDGs is about going a step further. To enrich student experience, the School encourages students to carry out their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities whilst personalizing their learning experience.

Nottingham Business School's mission is to deliver education and research that combines excellence with a positive impact on people, business and society. Therefore, Nottingham Business School (NBS) continually develops its responsible business and management provision to prepare future transformational leaders whilst equipping them with the required knowledge, skills and competencies to deliver transformative change.

It is great to be a PRME Champion business school where sustainability has been integrated into every undergraduate and postgraduate programme. We aim to continue to develop our sustainability agenda as part of the Embracing Sustainability strategic theme. Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) Report is an excellent way to share our story and developments with all our stakeholders. The PRME report showcases the excellent work academics are doing in NBS and offers opportunities for others to learn both internally and externally.
