With the ever growing public awareness of the negative/positive impact brought by the
activities of companies/organizations, Corporate Social Responsibility becomes
a domain that cannot be neglected in modern business world. The course thus aims
to help students to understand the core of CSR concepts and how these concepts
are applied in the marketplace, in the workplace, in the community and in the
ecological environment. It also targets to have discussion on the CSR

techniques later on in work.
