Is Hanken living up to its commitment to PRME?

Are you wondering how Hanken has been faring in its responsible management education and sustainability journey for the past couple of years? We have the answers for you in our latest PRME Report 2016-18!

Year 2018 marked the completion of 10 years of responsible management education at Hanken as we committed to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in April 2008. In all these years, Hanken has come a long way in integrating responsibility and sustainability across all its various roles and spheres of impact and commits to carry forward the integration building on its foundational work over the last decade.

During the last two years, the most important step has been Hanken’s renewed strategy Hanken 2025, which unequivocally articulates social responsibility as a core theme running through all of the activities at Hanken. Furthermore, the strategy calls for innovative teaching and learning environment in order to reach the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

-The report sheds light on what we are doing well and what we could improve, thus laying out for us a direction to take for the next couple of years. We certainly have an ambitious agenda in front of us and we must use this as an opportunity to innovate and collaborate to achieve our goals and the SDGs, says Karen Spens, Rector, Hanken School of Economics.
