Background

In today’s world, facing rapid shifts and dramatic economic, social and environmental challenges, issues related to societal responsibility, sustainability and business ethics are gaining more importance, especially in the business sector. Business goals are inseparable from the societies and environments within which they operate. Whilst short-term economic gain can be pursued, the failure to account for
longer-term social and environmental impacts makes those business practices unsustainable.
This course is designed to introduce participants to the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), operationalizing the term and ensuring a cohesive definition of CSR and its applications for corporate sustainability.

Course goal

The overall objective of the course is to enable professionals from private companies, NGOs, International
Organizations and Governments who wish to be involved in CSR, to define Corporate Social Responsibility
(CSR) and apply such concept in their institutions and day-to-day projects.

Methodology

Each module includes lessons that provide the core content. There are also reflection and collaborative
exercises that invite participants to watch videos, reflect on their social and economic environment and
discuss in partially facilitated discussion groups. Participants also engage in case study analysis, gaining
a better and more practical understanding of CSR.
Participants are required to complete assessment activities, including quizzes to test their understanding
and a practical activity where they use the acquired knowledge to analyze a specific CSR strategy.

Target Audience

The course aims to address the needs of professionals in private companies, NGOs, international
organizations and governments who would like to be involved in CSR and apply and embed the concept
of CSR in their institution.

Course duration & Workload

The course is composed of four modules that will be covered in three weeks, corresponding to 20
learning hours.

Certification

Successful completion of the course, entitling to a certificate of completion, requires participants to
