PRME serves as a vital link between the United Nations and higher education institutions focused on management education, with a significant number of top business schools already participating in the initiative.

By committing to the Seven Principles, MCBS has pledged to continuously improve its application of these principles, share progress updates regularly, and contribute to the collective learning experience within the global PRME community.
