In our largest lecture, CC504 - Corporate Social Responsibility, which is attended by approx. 450 Master students each year,we cover different topics related to sustainable management in a total of seven sessions (from basic theories of CSR to more current approaches such as Creating Shared Value to Social Business and Sharing Economy as current trends). In each session, we also integrate a guest speaker from business practice who reflects the content from a practitioner's perspective. This can be a CSR manager of a large company (e.g. Coca Cola, Adidas, IKEA, H&M or SAP), a founder of a start-up (e.g. Premium Cola or ListnRide) or a non-profit organisation (e.g. Greenpeace, WWF or Amnesty International). Each session and the respective guest lecture will be recorded on video. The guest lectures will be made freely available via our Youtube channel if the speakers have given their consent. The contents of the lecture will also be recorded on video and made available to the students for exam preparation.
Course content will be provided through videos and reading materials, accessible on Ilias.
