Managing Corporate Partnerships and Social Responsibility

PADM-GP.4134, 2 points.

Semester: Summer


A recent article in the Financial Times (4/20/09) discussed why, despite the recession, corporate responsibility is a survivor. This course explores: the global trends of business awareness of customer and employee involvement, the definitions, models and metrics of CSR (the triple bottom line and focus on environment, social and governance issues), the influence of socially responsible investing (SRI), and the blurred global boundaries between corporations, nonprofits and governments. The course uses a multidisciplinary approach. Guest participants from corporations and nonprofits will highlight key points through practical examples. Learning will be interactive and require your participation. You will be expected to hand in two short papers and a final paper.

Prerequisites: none
