The United Nations Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative calls upon business school leaders and professors to significantly up their game. There is a need to enhance phronesis, i.e. wisdom, on how to effectively improve teaching and learning over time. This book gathers insights on self-management, next generation teaching as well as learning, and a business school’s enhanced impact on graduates and society. It collects the rich experiences from a variety of international experts in order to support the learning journey of business school leaders and key faculty members.
