Published Date: Tuesday, 19 October 2021

Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU), Business and Economics Faculty has been granted the “active member” status following presenting its first progress report in United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education platform. EMU was initially joined the platform back in 2019. 

EMU Faculty of Business and Economics Dean Prof. Dr. Selcan Timur stated that PRME, supported by the United Nations (UN) and established on the basis of the United Nations Global Compact, has 6 basic and founding principles, and said that these principles are based on the progress of corporate sustainability and social responsibility efforts. Working with six basic principles, PRME aims to raise the sustainability profile in universities around the world and to provide future managers with the knowledge and skills related to these principles. While drawing attention to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), PRME aims to align academic institutions with the UN Global Compact. SDG is a universal call to action to eradicate poverty, protect our planet and ensure that all people live in peace and prosperity. It aims to provide the necessary skills (corporate sustainability, adherence to ethical values that take into account all stakeholder groups in the decision-making process, etc.) while raising future leaders and managers as Responsible Managers for the realization of the SDG. 

Prof. Dr. Timur made the following statements regarding the matter; “In our Progress Report given to PRME, we have included our work within the framework of these 6 principles. As we have shown in this report, the departments in our Faculty will contribute to our students and stakeholders’ understanding of the importance of social and corporate sustainability, social responsibility and environmental protection, and will carry out activities to establish educational and developmental systems.”
