PRME Chapter ASEAN+ Malaysia Kickoff Meeting

Date: 18th February 2016  
Time: 0900 – 1700
Venue: Management & Science University
Level 3, Platinum Sentral, KL Sentral

The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is an initiative between the United Nations and business schools to develop the path for management education and business to take on a key leading role in shaping and achieving the global development
agenda. (http://www.unprme.org).

PBS, the home of Human Governance, thus embraces the principles as our core competencies and acts as a unifying approach that acknowledges the uniqueness of each individual human, and also recognises the diversity of cultures across the Asian Region and ASEAN. In November 2015, we have established the PRME Chapter ASEAN+ together with Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business School in UUM, Graduate School of Business in USM, and other business schools from the Philippines and Indonesia.

In addition to be one of the founding members for the PRME Chapter ASEAN+ representing Malaysia, the principles forming Human Governance was recognised as an important aspect of the Principles for Responsible Management Education in the Asian context. PRME recognised that as humans we have an inherent sense of doing what is right and by focusing on the human, we also acknowledge the diversity of cultures, beliefs, and views seen around Asia.

The first Malaysian chapter’s kickoff meeting on the 18th February 2016 is expected to involve high level of engagement on PRME and its goals and sharing of business schools’ programs supporting PRME principles. The meeting also prepares for PRME Chapter ASEAN+ Steering Committee meeting in the Philippines scheduled in March 2016.

All business schools are encouraged to attend the meeting to show your support for such principles in a collective manner.  It is also an occasion to share with each other what we have been doing to further these principles and discuss how we follow up and engage others.  It is as much as an informal gathering as it is a collaborative one.

Do register yourself through Linda Mokhtar (linda@putrabs.edu.my) if you can be a part of this historical meeting. Business schools in Malaysia are ready to move forward to a more sustainable and human-centered approach.
