Comments about Master Corporate Social Responsibility - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    Over the last decade, the question of the relationship between organisations and society has been subject to much debate, often of a critical nature. The decade has seen protests concerning the actions of organisations, exposures of corporate exploitation and unfolding accounting scandals. At the same time, ethical behaviour and a concern for the environment have been shown to have a positive correlation with corporate performance. The nature of corporate social responsibility is therefore a topical one for business. The majority of organisations around the world are taking steps to demonstrate and enhance their CSR credentials, as the public interest in the issues involved is great. Consequently employment opportunities across the spectrum of management disciplines are extensive for graduates with this degree. London Metropolitan University is a leader in the application of the principles of social responsibility to the problems facing business. Students of this degree will benefit from the latest research and theory in this important area.

    Corporate Social Responsibility
    The concept of CSR is complex and evolving. It is the purpose of this module to introduce this complexity and the various components which might comprise socially responsible behaviour. The aim is to provide you with a framework both for further study and for planning and evaluating the actions and performance of an organisation in the context of sustainable and socially responsible activity.

    Corporate Governance and Accountability
    This module introduces you to the basics of corporate governance and stakeholder accountability. It therefore sets corporate behaviour in a wider context.

    Socially Responsible Finance
    This module examines the basics of corporate accounting and finance but differs from other similar modules because it takes a socially responsible approach.

    Research Methods for CSR
    The research methods module has two broad but complementary aims. The first aim is to develop the knowledge and skills you require to carry out research for your compulsory dissertation. The second, more general aim, is to develop your lasting skills to carry out rigorous research and independent work in your future careers. A wide range of options will be available to allow you to pursue your own interests within the broad area of CSR.

    The course will also require the completion of a Research Methods module and a 15 - 20,000 word dissertation on a relevant topic.

    Career opportunities
