Corporate Social Responsibility 2022-23
Bangor Business School
Module - Semester 2
This module will develop an understanding of the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility to various stakeholders. This will involve dealing with the question of business ethics and what this represents. How CSR can be successfully implemented in the workplace will be examined and consideration given to the difficulties and dilemmas that such implementation can entail. The module involves a visit to an external organisation, during which emphasis will be placed upon its CSR strategies. During the field visit there will be an opportunity to relate CSR theory to its practical applications.
