MBA 584: Business Strategy and Corporate Social Responsibility

Credits 3

Increasingly, executives and managers are being asked to lead their organizations in ways that consider impacts outside of profit-generation and maximizing shareholder value.  Specifically, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) movement in business is redefining the goals of business, and driving companies to operate in ways that enhance society and the natural environment, instead of contributing negatively to them.  This course explores the ways the CSR movement is shaping business strategy and decisions at the executive levels.
