KBS receives prestigious 'recognition for excellence' award from the UN

Nine recognitions for excellence in Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) reporting were announced during a high-level gathering of United Nations officials, academic deans, business executives, faculty, students, and other stakeholders. KBS received a 'recognition for excellence' award from the UN for its PRME SIP report.

Held on the first evening of the 2017 Global Forum for Responsible Management Education — 10 Years of PRME, the special reception honored nine schools for their high-quality SIP Reports.

The recognised institutions were selected by a peer review group under the guidance of Giselle Weybrecht, author, Special Advisor to PRME and expert in sustainable business education. SIP Recognitions have become a tradition of each PRME Global Forum, and are intended to spotlight significant achievements in reporting progress against the Six Principles at higher education signatories to the Principles for Responsible Management Education.

This prestigious endorsement not only recognises the quality of the KBS report, but also recognises the extent to which issues of sustainability, responsibility and ethics underpin teaching, research and engagement activities in KBS.

KBS involvement with the UN as a PRME Champion School contributes significantly to the KBS international profile, opening the School to several high-quality networks. It also connects KBS at a high level to the major accreditation bodies, as well as facilitating and celebrating KBS external engagement.
