Course Aims

This course aims to provide students with opportunities to develop concepts and frameworks of corporate social responsibility (CSR) while putting CSR in appropriate contexts whether local and/or international. Specifically, the course will introduce CSR to students such that students can assess firms’ CSR activities, evaluate critically the importance, rationale and relevance of these initiatives, as well as analyze the effectiveness of these undertakings. By doing so, students can have better understanding regarding key issues such as why top management, their stakeholders like standard setters and NGO’s would like firms to act in socially responsible ways, when and why those socially responsible behaviours would be appreciated by stakeholders, and how the expectation of being socially responsible may vary for firms with different sizes, in different industries and countries.
