Why study this course?
London Met has won several prestigious awards for corporate social responsibility (CSR) and environmental sustainability, and with this course, we aim to train sustainability managers of the future with a focus on employee engagement, environmental law, supply chain and environmental economics.
The work to be undertaken at London Metropolitan University
through the “One Campus One Community” project provides a unique opportunity to create a “living lab” where you’ll be taught through actual projects.
The involvement of the Estates Department will create opportunities for you to undertake work placements and further enhance employment skills.
As well as being delivered by experienced staff at London Met, you’ll also be taught by guest lecturers with knowledge and experience of corporate social responsibility.
Assessment will include a mixture of coursework, practical projects, presentations, and seen and unseen exams.
The dissertation is a 60 credit research project based on an area of your own interest.
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.
