At Lincoln International Business School we believe responsible business management is both expected by society and necessary in order to address global challenges. We are committed to developing responsible graduates who are aware of and prepared for these challenges in our rapidly changing and complex world. The PRME agenda helps us to do this and we are proud to have been signatories since 2010, along with other leading business schools worldwide. We have set up a dedicated committee, meeting four times a year, to ensure PRME is integrated into all our activities. This committee is chaired by the Director of the Lincoln International Business School, and is formed of all Heads of Departments, our UNESCO Chair on Responsible Foresight for Sustainable Development, Professor Ted Fuller and the PRME lead, Dr. Claire May. As signatories we are required to regularly report on our progress under the Six Principles and share this information with the wider PRME community.
