Join Dr Mohamed Saeudy for this online lecture on Wednesday 22nd March looking at the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).
The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is a United Nations-supported initiative founded in 2007. As a platform to raise the profile of sustainability in schools around the world, PRME equips today's business students with the understanding and ability to deliver change tomorrow. Working through Six Principles, PRME engages business and management schools to ensure they provide future leaders with the skills needed to balance economic and sustainability goals, while drawing attention to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aligning academic institutions with the work of the UN Global Compact.
In this session, Mohamed will examine the role of Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME hereafter) in delivering the curricula planning priorities in the business schools. His presentation will also investigate the role of PRME in creating more sustainable social, environmental, and economic values.
Dr Mohamed Saeudy is the Head of PG Accounting and Finance and Director of Research Centre for Contemporary Accounting, Finance and Economics (Res CAFE). His research interest focuses on how business organisations use innovative accounting and finance tools to manage the contemporary challenges of sustainable development. It involves the ambition to develop organisational lenses to explore how sustainability may allow or help organisations to improve their triple bottom line impact. He argues the possibility to create innovative social and environmental impact from the economic activities of business organisations.
He has designed many courses to help students to learn how to use accounting and finance tools to manage the contemporary challenges of sustainable development such as climate change, modern slavery, UN SDGs, human rights and ecological biodiversity. He develops social media tools e.g. blogs to help students to explore how business organisations could make business opportunities and profit from considering social and environmental activities. He also developed innovative academic courses on DBA, Green Accounting, Sustainable Finance and Financial Entrepreneurship. These courses cover many contemporary topics ranging from corporate governance to sustainable business strategies and policies. In addition, Dr Saeudy provides professional consultancies for many business organisations in the UK and overseas in the field of sustainable business solutions, entrepreneurial finance, green finance, risk management and virtual business innovation.
