Program Description

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) - is the study of how companies in a good way can integrate environmental and social responsibility into their business. We offer two 15-point courses, level 1 and 2, which can be combined in one semester. The courses can also be taken in combination with Spanish or the history of philosophy. The courses are offered in partnership with the University of Buskerud and Vestfold and la Universidad de Buenos Aires.

The semester starts August 31, 2015 and: February 1, 2016.

CSR - Corporate Social Responsibility - is a concept that deals with companies and organizations social responsibility - beyond what is required by laws and regulations. Social responsibility in this context means that companies voluntarily incorporate environmental and social concerns in their business. The majority of multinational companies today must be able to demonstrate strategies and documentation showing that they take CSR seriously. More and more companies are aware that CSR is economically viable, when it moves the focus from short-term profitability to long term sustainable growth. Corporate social responsibility is therefore much more than charity, because it rather focuses on the business itself to be sustainable. Competence of CSR is in great demand, not least by multinational companies who have established themselves in developing countries. The course is aimed to students and active workers looking to work in international organizations and corporations. The course can be part of a bachelor's degree, such as in business and social sciences.
