Academic Calendar 2017/2018 - Strategic Corporate Social Responsibility
ORGS 3007 Strategic Corporate Social Responsibility
Hours:Three hours of lecture per week for one term.
Description:It has become clear that business decision makers must not only be concerned with the financial implications of their decisions but also be aware of the social and environmental repercussions of their decisions. There exists an emergent body of research which demonstrates that a commitment to being socially and environmentally responsible has a positive impact on the financial bottom line. The challenge of how to be socially and environmental responsible while simultaneously being concerned with return-on-investment (ROI) for shareholders is one with which managers increasingly now struggle. This course examines the manner in which Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) can become an integral part of setting corporate/organizational strategies.
