Corporations are increasingly held accountable for their effect on both the environment and society. This course focuses on the corporation’s responsibility to its key constituencies such as customers, employees, shareholders, communities, and the environment in all parts of their operations. This concept extends beyond obligations to comply with regulations alone and finds companies taking further steps voluntarily to “do well by doing good”.
Through cases focusing on the social, reputational, and environmental consequences of corporate activities, you will learn how to make difficult choices, promote responsible behavior within their organizations, communicate effectively about corporate responsibility, and understand the role personal values play in developing responsible corporate behavior for both the organizations they will work for and themselves.
Hybrid education combines both remote and in-person learning to ensure learning continuity and improve the student experience. RSM has built a professional studio to facilitate the hybrid classes. You can come to class in person or attend the masterclass via live-video technology (Zoom). With the aid of Zoom, participants who are online have the same access to the classroom as every participant attending in person. You can choose your mode of participation in hybrid sessions, through physical or online attendance.
With the hybrid format, every participant is able to get the same information presented by the professor at the same time. Participants are all given the same opportunity to participate in class discussions, role play and group work. We are resolved to make our hybrid education to have the best of both worlds.
