Beyond the Strategy
Responsible Management (PRME)
During the term of a strategic plan, sometimes mission-aligned priorities emerge that do not fall within the plan due to an unforeseen confluence of time, change of circumstance and energy. Such an opportunity arose when Sobey School’s faculty voted unanimously to sign on to the United Nations Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) in 2014. This action aligned with the spirit of several elements in our mission, and fulfilling our commitment to PRME has added a new dimension to other work we have undertaken within the plan. A second opportunity arose with our acceptance into EFMD providing access to an impact framework, and an opportunity to measure what we increasingly recognized was our crucial contribution to Nova Scotia's prosperity.
