This specialist Masters provides the practical research skills and management background for you to work in these areas.

About

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.
