This course focuses on the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability (CSRS) as it relates to organizations in the domestic and international domain. The course takes an interdisciplinary approach to CSRS, and considers the historical, philosophical, strategic, political, environmental, psychological and global underpinnings of this phenomenon.
Students will be introduced to its history and evolution, the diverse approaches to its conceptualization and application, its relationship to traditional financial performance measures, its implications for functional and stakeholder groups and its global effect and reach.
