MSc in Responsibility & Business Practice
University of Bath, (England) School of Management
This course addresses the challenges currently facing managers who seek to integrate successful business practice with a concern for social, environmental and ethical issues. It looks at the complex relationship between business decisions and their impact on local and world communities and economies, on the environment and on the workplace itself. Participants will develop innovative management practices which are responsive to pressures for greater awareness in these areas. The course offers a wide range of alternative perspectives on business, all of which challenge ideas about where "responsibility" begins and ends. Participants will also learn about management techniques and approaches being developed in leading-edge organisations, and will test the relevance of these ideas and practices in their own workplaces.
