Master of Science in Business Ethics and Compliance

Corporate Social Responsibility Track

The MBEC Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Track explores the benefits of ethical and responsible behavior and allows students to examine ethics and corporate responsibility at the organizational level involving the role of business in society, the legal environment, the role of compliance and regulation, and the expectations that society places on a business in exchange for its legitimacy.

Students will learn how to engage effectively with stakeholders of all types — consumer activists, shareholders, community groups, non-governmental organizations and suppliers.
