Semester : Spring 2017-2018

Course Description

Traditional strategy theory holds that to be successful, a company must focus on financial performance, as against the broader influences of society which determine their longer-term success. In this course we will discuss arguments for bringing business and society back together through the principle of corporate social responsibility and shared value – creating economic value in a way that also creates value for society by addressing its needs and challenges. This course will provide an analysis of the drivers, tools and enablers to improve corporate responsibility with a more specific focus on social challenges that companies can contribute to solve.
