UK&I PRME Conference 2024 (19th-21st June)

The University of Exeter Business School is delighted and honoured to have been chosen to host the Chapter’s 11th Anniversary Conference and we hope that many of you, academics, practitioners, students and organisations, will join us in investigating how Business Schools contribute to a Greener, Healthier and Fairer Society.

The conference will provide multiple opportunities to reflect on the impact that the Chapter, and UN-PRME more widely, have made in promoting and embedding responsible management education, and encouraging dialogue and input on ways to refresh and re-envision the work of PRME for the years ahead.
