United National Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) Commitment

UQ Business School is a proud supporter and Advanced Signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (UN PRME).

PRME is an initiative of the United Nations Global Compact founded in 2007 as a platform to encourage and increase awareness and integration of sustainability in business schools around the world.

Today, PRME is the largest coordinated effort between the world’s business schools and the United Nations. UQ Business School became a PRME signatory in 2015. As a school, we understand the privilege and responsibility of providing quality education that gives learners the knowledge and tools they need to succeed, change lives and transform societies.
