Program Description:
This study tour aims at providing the students with an overview of the French and, more broadly, the European approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). More specifically the course will explore the role of government in CSR, sustainability and responsible management.
While CSR is a challenge for companies and organizations in all parts of the world, the way these principles are implemented within organizations differ between countries since they are influenced by legal, economic, social and cultural contexts.

The study tour will focus on the role of government at the international, the national and the local level in encouraging CSR, sustainability and responsible management. The French context is particularly interesting from this point of view, since France was the first country in Europe that introduced mandatory non-financial disclosure. The European Union also provides a range of CSR initiatives and strategies which will be explored.
Throughout the study tour, the students will attend seminars with professors specialised in different aspects of CSR, who have developed extensive research in the areas of governance, stakeholder engagement, diversity and sustainability. Each of them will focus on a specific feature of CSR in the European context and the role of government within that context. In parallel, the students will visit several companies that have implemented innovative strategies in the field of CSR and will have the opportunity to discuss issues and challenges with managers in the field.
