BSBI becomes member of ‘PRME Champion 2024-2025’
On Wednesday 17 January, the Berlin School of Business and Innovation was recognised as a member of the prestigious ‘PRME Champion 2024-2025’ by Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).
PRME announced a new cohort of champions for 2024-25, including BSBI and 46 other PRME signatory members globally, recognised for their impactful contributions in thought and action leadership. The champion members are carefully selected from a pool of strong and diverse applicants and will join the cohort facilitated by the PRME Secretariat.
The selected 2024-2025 Champion cohort members focus on advancing the recommitment to the refreshed Seven Principles of PRME, engaging in roundtables to generate ideas and solutions for institutional challenges within business schools supporting the PRME strategy. They align with the vision of the United Nations Global Compact to complete actions toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Moreover, the 2024-2025 champions play a crucial role in curating content for PRME Commons, the upcoming digital space for accountability, exchanges, and learning among PRME community members. Additional outputs from the Champions Programme will be determined by the cohort’s collaborative agenda.
Sagi Hartov, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, said: "We are delighted to be part of this exciting journey with PRME as one of its ‘PRME Champions 2024-2025’. Being part of this elite list signifies our constant commitment to providing quality education to our students and motivates us to move forward in the right direction. I congratulate all the members involved at BSBI."
Professor Dr Kyriakos Kouveliotis, Provost and Chief Academic Officer FRSA, shared: “BSBI has started its PRME journey from just joining the organisation as a Signatory Member. From that moment, we have not only been active but also completed a number of milestones which enabled us to receive and be able to join this amazing elite group of universities and institutions around the world.
In this framework, we created a comprehensive report on our activities towards the enhancement of the SDGs of the United Nations; our students have won the ‘PRME Global Students’ Advocates Contest’; and BSBI will host the 2024 Global PRME Conference in its premises. We are so proud, honoured but at the same time we feel the responsibility to maintain this high level of commitment.”
BSBI is also a signatory member of PRME, an initiative of the UN Global Compact that involves over 800 business and management schools worldwide. These memberships with esteemed organisations enhance the vision and mission of BSBI, providing future leaders with the skills needed to balance economic, environmental, and social goals, while keeping the SDGs in mind.
