    Written by many of the key influencers at the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), the book focuses on advancing sustainable development into education, research and partnerships at higher education institutions and, specifically, at business schools, with the purpose of educating responsible leaders for today and tomorrow.

    The book serves as a concrete source of inspiration for universities and other stakeholders in higher education on structures, processes and content for how to advance responsible management education and sustainable development. It articulates the importance of key themes connected with climate change, gender equality, anti-corruption, business for peace, anti-poverty and other topics that are related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The book emphasizes the significance of local–global interaction, drawing on local action at management schools in combination with global knowledge exchange across the PRME community. In addition, the book clearly demonstrates the background, key milestones and successful achievements of PRME as a global movement by management schools in collaboration with a broader community of higher education professionals. It exemplifies action in various local geographies in PRME Chapters, PRME Working Groups and the PRME Champions work to advance responsible management education. The authors of the book are all globally experienced deans, professors, educators, executives and students with a global outlook, who are united to advance responsible management education locally and globally.

    The book will be invaluable reading for university leaders, educators, business school deans and students wanting to understand and embed responsible management education approaches across their institutions and curricula.

    "Solving the world’s most vexing issues requires coordinated and sustained efforts by governments, NGOs, scientists, educators and others. The PRME Global Movement’s focus on responsible management education and advancing sustainable development provides a roadmap for business schools to train the leaders of tomorrow to tackle these challenges." -- Caryn Beck Dudley, President and CEO, AACSB

    "Any business school administrator or responsible management teacher *must read* this book. Not only does this book describe management education around the world, it gives us all hope that business schools can educate the people who can build a bright future for all." -- Tima Bansal, Professor, Ivey Business School; Founder, Network for Business Sustainability

    "This book contains important essays by a veritable Who’s Who in the movement to make business schools more responsible and more focused on issues like ethics and sustainability. As business shifts to a more explicit 'stakeholder capitalism', these ideas will serve as a critical resource." -- Ed Freeman, Professor, Elis and Signe Olsson Professor of Business Administration, Darden School of Business, University of Virginia

    "A timely analysis at a pivotal moment, as debate on climate change and social responsibility rekindle the need to explore the role of business schools in research, operations and training the coming generation with the values and skills to influence purpose-led business. Institutions now need to move from principles to action, backed by metrics to track how they are making a difference." -- Andrew Jack, Global Education Editor, Financial Times

    "Responsible management education has never been more important. This timely, insightful, and inspirational book provides an overarching framework for understanding where management educators need to intervene in their curricula. Importantly, it outlines what future leaders need to learn to bring about flourishing for all." Sandra Waddock, Galligan Chair of Strategy Carroll School Scholar of Corporate Responsibility Professor of Management, Boston College

    "My history as an educator intersects with the history of PRME, and this book is an opportunity to explore the role of responsible executive education as a vector of transformation of society. In these pages it is possible to know how a living and active community of rectors, researchers, teachers and students connects in a collaborative way to contribute to sustainable development and develop the leaders of the future."-- Norman Arruda Filho, President, ISAE Brazilian Business School

    "This book touched me personally… Years ago, I studied for an MBA but was ill at ease with the instrumentality underlying the management education. That paradigm educated generations of managers, but PRME aims to change that and infuse meaning and purpose into management education. Capturing the PRME global movement, this book is a statement of hope … an important treasure for all stakeholders to hold, read, pause and think about their role in business education." -- Hari Bapuji, Professor, The University of Melbourne

    "Finally!!! We have the book that will become bedrock and inspiration for all those who believe in advancing responsible management education. This is the first book that has documented backgrounds, stories, and key milestones of the global PRME Chapters and all PRME Working groups. My sincere congratulations to Prof. Mette Morsing for conceptualizing and leading this open access project." -- Dr. Divya Singhal, Professor and Chairperson, Centre for Social Sensitivity and Action (CSSA) at the Goa Institute of Management, Goa, India

    "This book is the first comprehensive guide to PRME. Easy to navigate, the book provides helpful context on PRME’s emergence in guiding a future that focuses on narrowing the disparity between business and management school signatories in the Global North and Global South, offering as a great reference for new global PRME chapters." -- Sherwat Elwan, Associate Professor and Director, MBA & EMBA Programs, The American University in Cairo

    "Before 2020, the world was already calling for a change in the usual way of doing business. While the benefits of the capitalist system that predominates around the globe were evident, so were the persistent complex social and environmental challenges. As we close 2021, the transformation we expected is even more urgent. Faced with the opportunity to rebuild the foundations of the economy, responsible management education is crucial. In this context, higher education institutions and business schools must embrace a more conscious and sustainable perspective into all their activities. This book will serve as a tool for every stakeholder of these institutions to propel their efforts to advance management education that prepares current and future leaders that will take actions for the wellbeing of society and the planet." -- Christina Molina, Research Professor in the Strategy and Leadership Department at EGADE Business School.
