background

GIM has been associated with the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) since 2011. The association was part of GIM’s commitment to develop socially responsible leaders and managers.

In 2011, the Institute introduced a course on Social Responsibility and Action as part of the core curriculum of the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM). The course promotes social responsibility through a service-learning project called the ‘GiveGoa project’.

In the project, first year students work in teams with client organizations to serve the under-privileged sections of Goan society. This helps students understand the context of the underprivileged and build relationships with them. We expect this sensitivity to promote more responsible decision-making among our students.

We have run the course for four years. A significant proportion of the students appreciate the learnings from the project. Students have formed a club called Samarthan to help implement the GiveGoa project and reach out to the local community.

However, more responsible decision-making requires a stronger integration of Responsible Management into the curriculum. The 6th PRME Forum provides an opportunity to learn how this could be done. The theme of this Forum is Integrating Responsible Management into B-School curriculum.

Objectives

The 6th PRME Asia Forum will provide delegates with an opportunity to explore why responsible management is important and how it can be integrated into the B-School curriculum. Respected leaders from Asian firms and Business Schools will share why and how they integrate responsible management into their strategies. More specifically, the Forum (and the pre-Forum Workshop) will provide an opportunity to do the following:

  • Reflect on the role of firms and Business Schools in advancing Responsible Management Education and implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Share what firms and Business Schools are doing to integrate social responsibility into their strategies, challenges experienced and outcomes
  • Motivate administrators and teachers across Business Schools to integrate social responsibility into their thought and action
  • Assist teachers in teaching social responsibility and
  • Promote networks among Asian B-Schools and between firms & B-Schools to jointly implement responsibility-enhancing projects.
