We believe that schools of business should nurture students to become socially responsible managers, leaders, and entrepreneurs. Therefore, along with many forward-thinking international universities all around the globe, we are committed to the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME), an initiative of the United Nations Global Compact to promote awareness about the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Joining the movement to achieve the UN Global Agenda of Sustainable Development Goals, SBM ITB became an advanced signatory of PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education)


PRME seek to establish a process of continuous improvement among institutions of management education in order to develop a new generation of business leaders capable of managing complex challenges faced by business and society in the 21st century.

We will develop the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.

Principle 2 | Values:
We will incorporate into our academic activities and curricula the values of global social responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact.

We will create educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.

We will interact with managers of business corporations to extend our knowledge of their challenges in meeting social and environmental responsibilities and to explore jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges.

We will facilitate and support dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organisations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
