Programme Description

This programme introduces students to the concept of corporate social responsibility and prepares them to develop skills required to independently plan and implement the CSR projects initiatives. It also gives students opportunities to learn while working with the partner industry on live CSR projects. Practicing corporate social responsibility requires that a corporation meld business goals with societal expectations. To do so means addressing complex questions such as: What obligations do businesses have to the societies in which they operate? Can the interests of corporations and their outside stakeholders be aligned or are they in inherent conflict? This programme prepares the students to answer the theoretical issues through practical interventions.
