PRiME Competition 2022

PRiME Competition is inspired by the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME), a worldwide initiative of the UN Global Compact to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

Students presented their class projects that support the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Professors provided guidance to our students. Top managers who are experts in the sustainability field participated as judges, and the community voted for the People's Choice Award. 

Together, we can shape a more sustainable future!
