Course Description

This course explores how the three-pronged people-planet-profit sustainability model is applied to businesses operating in a number of different industry sectors. Students are introduced to definitional, conceptual, and theoretical aspects of corporate social responsibility (CSR), the challenges facing CSR-oriented firms in balancing the immediate financial sustainability with the need for long term economic, social, and environmental benefits for the communities and other stakeholders impacted by their operations, as well as possible methods for addressing people-planet-profit challenges.


This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
