General Introduction
The Global Compact was first announced by the then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in an address to The World Economic Forum on January 31, 1999. The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), the first global guiding framework for academic institutions to advance the broader cause of corporate social responsibility, was launched at the 2007 Global Compact Leaders’ Summit, held on 5-6 July at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. The mission of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative is to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally.
 
The FAQs concerning corporate social responsibility have changed from “whether or not we should do CSR” to “how should we do CSR”. Meanwhile, there is an increasing belief that business schools should educate students to be not only capable managers, but also responsible managers. How far are we from having real, responsible corporations? Can responsibility be taught to business school students? What is the influence of east-Asian values in and out of classroom? The PRME forum allows the voices of entrepreneurs, executives, professors, and students of various communities to gather and be heard.
 
The theme of PRME is “Rethinking Responsible Management Education in Asia”. We hope this forum can draw attention to the importance of “responsibility” in Asian business school education and in Asian business practices.
 
The forum is a continuation of the successful 1st Asia Forum for UN PRME held in Seoul. As one of the earliest member school of PRME, Tsinghua will host the regional forum this year.
