Joint Global Compact/EFMD Global Responsibility Initiative Accepts Applications


The Global Compact and the European Foundation for Management Development (efmd) have launched a unique partnership to address the question of how to best develop a new generation of globally responsible business leaders.

The "Global Responsibility Initiative" invites Global Compact participants and efmd members, including more than 500 of the world’s leading business and management schools, to participate in a 12-month hands-on learning process, forming effective global alignments and establishing pace-setting practices for business schools and companies.

In this process, the selected leading and entrepreneurial-minded business schools and companies – in a controlled and open environment – will regularly meet in joint workshops to upgrade their best practices by:

• addressing crucial issues, sharing experiences, and learning from each other;
forming effective alignments;
• undertaking catalytic work with the clear aim of - based on global best practices - feeding quality systems (EQUIS, CLIP, etc) that set standards for and accredits business schools and management development centres on a global basis; as well as
• disseminating results globally by sharing best practices with peers.

Applications will be accepted until March 28, 2004. Please click here to acces EFMD's website on the initiative.
