PRME Anti-Corruption Toolkit

The PRME Anti-Corruption Toolkit was designed to provide comprehensive anti-corruption guidelines for curriculum change in business schools and management-related academic institutions around the world. Its eleven modules, which can be used individually or as a stand-alone course, aim to address the ethical, moral, and practical challenges that students will face in the marketplace. The Toolkit was developed by the PRME Working Group on Anti-Corruption in Curriculum Change with support from Siemens as part of the Siemens Integrity Initiative.
