Corporate Social Responsibility – a strategic management tool that addresses the impact that an organisation’s action has on the environment, society, and the economy and controls these specifically.

The rapid economic growth of recent decades has created a great deal of opportunities – and also negatively impacted the ecosystem. For this reason, we need leaders who can professionally manage the needs of people, the environment, and the economy while reconciling them for future generations. Graduates of "International Corporate Social Responsibility Management | MBA" acquire the necessary skills for this.

The MBA programme is designed for managers, (prospective) CSR managers, communication managers, business consultants and project managers.
