The course provides master’s students an introduction to key concepts and perspectives that describe the challenges, opportunities and risks that mainly companies – but also governments, other organizations and more broadly societies – face regarding social and environmental responsibilities. In the course, students have the opportunity to learn about perspectives on social responsibility from many subjects at Hanken (with videos relating to accounting, commercial law, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, information systems, management, marketing, politics and business, and supply chain management).

The sustainable development goals (SDGs) are introduced through videos too and some of their targets that are particularly relevant to business are emphasized.

The course is mandatory for all master's degree students at Hanken.

External students can take the course as part of the study module in Corporate Responsibility.
