As a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) since 2012, the Faculty of Business & Law continues to support the PRME initiative to incorporate and advance the values of social responsibility within the curriculum, research and learning methods of management education. Our faculty is committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework and which we have engaged with to address the challenges in an impactful way by pursuing meaningful and relevant research, embedding sustainability in our educational programs, engaging with the community and providing thought and action leadership to build sustainability-based partnerships.

Our continued efforts to provide quality teaching, research programs and building partnerships for employability, innovation and inclusiveness is reflected in our 5 star ranking. Deakin is internationally recognised for our quality of research and teaching, ranking 231 in the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) and in the top 2% of the world’s universities.

The Faculty of Business and Law was recognised by the UN PRME secretariat for Excellence in Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) report at the 2020 Virtual PRME Global Forum. Selected by a peer review group under the guidance of Giselle Weybrecht, author, Editor to the PRiMEtime Blog and expert in sustainable business education, this SIP Recognition highlighted the significant achievements in our work with the Six Principles of higher education set by the PRME (Purpose, Values, Method, Research, Partnerships and Dialogue).

Deakin Business School (DBS) contributed to the Blueprint for Sustainable Development Goals Integration in Business Schools at the 2020 Virtual PRME Global Forum. Associate Professors Fara Azmat and Harsh Suri from DBS headed this contribution as research and curriculum leads, respectively. The Blueprint is a step-by- step guide for all Business Schools to implement SDGs across their curriculum, research and partnerships. It was developed in collaboration with the global PRME signatories and was launched officially at the forum.

Deakin Business School continues to serve as a ‘Champion for PRME’ for the 2020-2021 period after being selected by the UN PRME secretariat to serve for a second time.
