MSc in Corporate Social Responsibility with Environmental Management

Course Description

“A Scientific Mind with Business Skills”: this specialist 12-month Masters programme combines the fields of business management and the environmental sciences. From learning to read financial statements to analysing pollution data, negotiating and writing reports, you will learn a set of skills that make you attractive to employers. Whether you have a business or a scientific background, we will make you influential in the boardroom and in the field.

Both Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environmental Management are increasingly important for a wide range of organisations. The context of the programme is international. You will explore the transnational nature of sustainability issues and business ethics dilemmas faced by business, regulators and policy-makers, and the major challenges faced by decision makers when designing and implementing CSR policies. Throughout the year external speakers from multinational companies and CSR consultancies will intervene and contribute to your theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

By the end of the programme you will have developed the essential skills associated with the business management of sustainable organisations, as well as experience in environmental assessment and maximising ethical governance in organisations.

What the programme covers

The programme incorporates a range of modules in business and environmental management, which are taught between October and May. Between May and September, you will write a dissertation in any aspect of CSR and/or Environmental Management covered by the syllabus.
