CSR and environmental management are becoming key issues for a wide range of businesses and organisations, both in the UK and overseas, as they seek to resolve longstanding operational and competitive challenges using socially and environmentally friendly technologies and processes.
The context of the programme will be international, reflecting the increasing trend towards the globalisation of business organisation and the transnational nature of environmental problems faced by the corporate sector and regulators and policy-makers.
The programme is suitable for those aiming for careers in management both in the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, which require an understanding of CSR, and environmental management.
The programme incorporates a range of modules from business management and environmental science including compulsory modules in Corporate Social Responsibility and Risk, Continuity and Change in Organisations, Qualitative Research Methods, Tools for Environmental Assessment, Social and Environmental Accounting, Climate Change and Carbon Management, and Quantitative Methods and Data Analysis, and Financial Management.
Optional modules may include the Management of Human Resources, Strategic Management and Organisational Change, the study of Business Information Systems, Innovation and Technology Management, Operations and Project Management, Environment, Law and Policy, Pollution Control and Waste Management, Environmental Economics, Environmental Science and Management Case Studies, and Environmental Contaminants: Pathways and Processes. The programme also incorporates a dissertation component involving independent research in any aspect of CSR and Environmental management covered by the syllabus.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
