Corporate Purpose and Social Impact

Our new Corporate and Social Impact specialization looks at the concepts of sustainability, organizational purpose and corporate social responsibility (CSR) that are becoming more and more crucial to understanding the role of business in society. This specialization aims at defining CSR and how organizations create social impact. 

The program will look at new managerial solutions and new performance evaluation and reporting methodologies capable of integrating and improving traditional economic measures. It is designed to build a new vision of social impact based on a stakeholder framework.

Whether Corporate Social Responsibility is understood as organizations taking responsibility or society holding organizations accountable, the underlying issues are about the environmental, social, and governance opportunities and risks that have emerged in today’s globalized, networked world.
