The IEDC-Bled School of Management was selected as a 2024-25 PRME Champion among only 47 schools worldwide with a track record of impactful contributions in thought and action leadership.
The focus of the 2024-2025 Champions cycle will be on advancing the re-commitment to the refreshed Seven Principles of PRME; engagement in Thematic Roundtables for generating ideas and solutions to institutional challenges within business schools that support the PRME strategy; and alignment with the vision of the United Nations Global Compact in completing actions toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Additionally, the 2024-2025 Champions will be essential in curating content to contribute to PRME Commons - the upcoming digital space for accountability, exchanges and learning between members of the PRME community.
The PRME Community is a group of over 800 dedicated business and management schools from across the world, committed to working collaboratively to develop and promote responsible management education in the context of the sustainable development agenda of the United Nations.
This recognition of IEDC is based on the 38 years of efforts to provide responsible leadership development. The IEDC was one of the first schools in the world to integrate the subject of ethics into the core curriculum more than 25 years ago. Since 2008, IEDC has held the Coca-Cola Chair for Sustainable Development, and in 2018, IEDC, in collaboration with several global centres of excellence, established WISE (World Institute for Sustainability and Ethics in Rising Economies), a global institute for sustainability and ethics in emerging economies, of which the Slovenian companies NLB and Luka Koper are active supporters.
We are also happy to share that Rok Ramšak, has been appointed as one of three members of the PRME Global Chapter Council. Rok is Head of the Postgraduate Studies Office at IEDC and Secretary General of the WISE Institute at the IEDC-Bled School of Management. He represented IEDC in the PRME Champion group and was an active member of the PRME CEE Chapter. In his new role, Rok will work as an advisor to the PRME Secretariat and PRME Chapters, supporting their development and impact.
