Today’s crisis brings our financial, economic and governance systems to an unprecedented moment of truth. ’Business as usual’ is not an adequate response, instead both practitioners and academics need to search for alternative ways of doing business that allow both prosperity and a sustainable development.

 This advanced CSR seminar aims at providing tools enabling the students to elicit critical thinking on ethical, social and environmental issues raised by contemporary organizations. Moreover, the specificity of the firms’ impact on economic life will be addressed by analyzing the principles and practices covered by the field of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

 This seminar will give an opportunity to students to deepen their knowledge on diverse issues and dimensions linked to CSR (for instance, diversity, intergenerational skill transfer, carbon management, bribery) and concretely apply their knowledge on concrete and real case studies proposed by companies. This seminar will be a place for discussion, debate, critical thinking on concrete cases of corporate practices.
