You'll examine theory, evidence and practice in CSR as well as the governance, assessment and practical resolution of environmental problems. You will combine the study of scientific, legal, policy and risks associated with sustainability with accounting, ethical and organisation aspects of business.

You'll look at the globalisation of business and the transnational nature of the environmental problems faced by business, regulators and policy makers. You will be introduced to the major challenges faced by decision makers when implementing Corporate Social Responsibility policies in the real world and you'll examine the consultancies helping organisations achieve their CSR objectives.

You will be trained in suitable research methods and relevant ethical and legal issues while practising your research skills with independent projects. By the end of the course you'll have developed the essential skills associated with business and financial management and managing sustainable organisations, as well as experience in environmental assessment and maximising ethical governance in organisations. This Corporate Social Responsibility with Environmental Management course is offered by University of York.
