Modules

Business failures in the global financial sector, and the subsequent repercussions for a range of different groups, not just shareholders, have put the spotlight on the role of business and the behaviour of managers. Is business just responsible for maximising profit for its owners, or does it have responsibilities to other groups? This raises a number of difficult questions; which groups? responsible for what? And if so, how to discharge these responsibilities? The Globalisation and Corporate Responsibility module has three main aims: To develop critical thought, insight and debate regarding the changing role of business in today's society; To broaden your views on the role of business in society.
