Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

Corporate responsibility and sustainability have become significant issues for a wide range of organisations and for the managers who work within them. The reasons for this include high-profile corporate scandals; a growing need to demonstrate accountability, transparency and sustainability; a decreasing tolerance for corporate excess and irresponsibility; and the need to protect corporate reputation and to develop brand loyalty and competitive advantage. The MSc Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability will deepen your understanding and stimulate critical thinking in these areas. You will have the opportunity to practise problem-focused decision-making on a range of economic, social and environmental issues that affect the operation of contemporary organisations. The programme will be of benefit if you wish to develop further insights into corporate responsibility and sustainability as part of your career, or if you have limited knowledge of the subject but would like to embark on a career in this sector. It is also ideal if you wish to continue on to a PhD. **HIGHLIGHTS** - Based in the School of Business, Economics and Informatics, the Department of Management is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in teaching, research and consultancy in the broad field of management. - Our academic staff are active researchers as well as enthusiastic teachers, and regularly publish cutting-edge articles in the world's leading journals.
