Core module 14

Corporate Social Responsibility

Notions of what CSR might add (or detract) to a modern enterprise are unclear and inconsistent, and infinitely variable. In essence, there seems to be an absence of any coherent conceptual framework underpinning the plethora of initiatives which fall under the CSR banner. This module equips you with a comprehensive understanding of the social responsibilities of a modern business organisation.

  • Context and introduction to Corporate Governance and CSR
  • CSR in practice: why should corporations behave responsibly?
  • CSR and Consumers
