Principles for Responsible Management Education

As an institution of higher education involved in the development of current and future managers, the Faculty of Business of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is committed to progressing in the implementation of the Principles for Responsible Management Education, starting with those that are more relevant to our capacities and mission, reporting our progress to all stakeholders and exchanging effective practices related to these principles with other academic institutions.

Since signing up to PRME, we have been striving to set an example of the values and attitudes we convey to our students with our organizational practices and encouraging other academic institutions and associations to adopt and support these Principles.

We will make every endeavor to do the same in the days to come.

  Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative

GRLI, founded in 2004 by EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development) and the United Nations Global Compact, is a worldwide partnership of companies and learning institutions aimed at developing a new generation of globally responsible leaders. GRLI developed the concept of global responsibility as a higher order of responsibility beyond corporate social responsibility and catalysed the creation of two journals (Journal of Global Responsibility and Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal). Among GRLI’s 53 partner organizations around the world, the Faculty is the first business school from Hong Kong.
