After the course
CSR is an umbrella term that many companies use to describe a variety of activities and can permeate through many roles in an organisation. Potential careers can be in all aspects of an organisation and we would expect our graduates to become managers and future leaders in business with an interest in implementing CSR. Successful graduates could also be consulting or advising corporations on their CSR efforts.
Moving to one campus
Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University
campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.
Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.
All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of- the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.
You will need: a good bachelor’s degree (2.2) in any subject. Exceptionally, candidates with significant CSR experience at a senior level may be considered. Interviews are generally required for non-standard entry.
