Course content

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – the nature of the relationship between corporates, governments and communities has become increasingly significant as all parties become aware of the potential positive (or negative) impacts of businesses on the world beyond their immediate and obvious activities.

This MSc is designed to enable students to apply ways of thinking about CSR to local and global industries such as telecoms, finance, commodities trading and the extractive industries. Incorporating the study of a diverse array of local to global factors, the course assists students in grasping the complexities of the contemporary issues and challenges facing a variety of sectors and their role in development alongside governments and third sector organisations.
