As more companies move from a profit-only outlook to one that focuses on communities and society as a whole, the ability to manage and improve an organization’s social impact is in high demand. Students examine key issues in corporate responsibility, such as how to achieve greater transparency while protecting proprietary information, leverage social involvement in branding, improve operational efficiency through environmental initiatives, and strengthen stakeholder relationships. Coursework focuses on the development of writing and critical-thinking skills at the doctoral level.
