Students will explore responsible business practices and sustainability in the context of international business and will develop an understanding of its strategic role and explore its future economic, environmental and social impacts on today’s organisations.
Through the programme, students will develop the ability to apply critical and innovative ways of re-thinking social responsibility and citizenship for local and global industries. They are encouraged to develop their knowledge and understanding and importantly, their interpersonal and leadership skills to be able to affect positive change.
In addition to developing relevant theoretical insights, our Industry Weeks allow students to interact with organisations and to develop practical and hands-on solutions to opportunities. This encourages entrepreneurial thinking and gives them a chance to develop, test and plan ideas for new sustainable ventures. We will also teach them how to pitch ideas to investors and key stakeholders.
Our programme combines a research-led approach with a practical, professional focus to meet the growing demand for leaders who can help organisations identify and achieve their social and sustainability aims. We offer a robust programme for those seeking leadership with a CSR and sustainability component and provides students with the opportunity to focus and interact with industry issues and ideas, in the context of a continuously changing world.
We apply a cross-disciplinary approach to explore the current and future challenges faced by businesses, not-for-profits and government. It is aimed at professionals in corporations, not-for-profits and governmental agencies who want to bring about fundamental changes in business practices, individual and social behaviours.
