Résumé: In this article, we point out the axiological ambiguity surrounding the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME)–that is, the near absence of reflections regarding the specific values on which the PRME should be based, even though values are supposed to play a central role in it. To clarify the notion of value, we draw on Heinich’s (2017) axiological sociology, which presents values as principles of judgment and action. On the basis of the methodological recommendations of this approach, we interviewed 35 management professors to understand the values and practices they attribute to responsible management. Our analysis led to the identification of seven actionable values that define responsible management practices and education. Lastly, we draw on the management literature to expand these seven values, establish their relevance, and demonstrate their significance for three levels of analysis: individual (micro), organizational (meso), and societal (macro).
