Course Introduction

The MSc Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding, to stimulate critical thinking and to practise problem'focused decision'making on a range of economic, social and environmental issues that affect the operation of contemporary organisations. It will be of benefit to those individuals who either have already acquired an appreciation of corporate responsibility and sustainability through their career and wish to develop further insights into this subject, or those who have limited knowledge of the subject and wish to develop their understanding and appreciation of it or use the knowledge gained to embark on a career in this sector. We have particular research strengths in international business and strategy, the management of innovation and entrepreneurship, human resource management, corporate governance, sport management and marketing, as well as financial management and accounting. We offer students of all ages and backgrounds a chance to study either part'time or full'time in our department and to gain an internationally recognised University of London qualification.
