Corporate Social Responsibility, or Corporate Sustainability as leading companies are increasingly re-naming it, has never been more relevant to our organisations. By maximising positive social and environmental business impacts as well as economic ones, this strategic approach creates business opportunities, enables the business to flourish in the long term, and ensures that organisations have a positive impact in the world. The Cranfield Management and Corporate Sustainability MSc will teach you the practicalities of how businesses successfully embed sustainability into their core business purpose and strategy.

The programme equally provides a world-class practical education in the management disciplines required for all senior leadership positions. It therefore shares a number of modules and other programme activities with our Management MSc programme, which is ranked 1st in the UK and 7th in the world in The Economist Which MBA? Masters in Management (MiM) 2017 ranking.

Who is it for?

  • Graduates with a keen interest in the social, environmental and economic impact that organisations have on the world, and who aspire to embed sustainability into their future management career across a varied range of private, public and not-for-profit organisations, sectors and roles.
  • Early career professionals who wish to transition into a sustainability-focused role.
