Corporate Social Responsibility: Creating Value Through Sustainable Collaborative Development
McGill University’s Board of Governors formally created the Institute for the Study of International Development in December 2008, and it has already become a leader in cutting-edge research and teaching related to international development. Such rapid success in part reflects McGill’s long history of commitment to promoting development studies, dating back to the creation of the Centre for Developing-Area Studies in 1963. It also reflects a renewed commitment to building bridges between McGill and the international development community through their unique focus on multidisciplinary research that is intended to contribute directly to better evidence-based development policies and practices.
The programme is based on the Institute’s proven standards for multidisciplinary research and teaching, and with the vast array of practical development experience represented by our networks in the public, private and civil society realms, the program will cover: An introduction to the challenges that many sectors of society grapple with in an increasingly complicated landscape of development, corporate and social responsibility; The skills and resources needed to effectively meet the challenges of corporate and social responsibility; The tools and strategies required to develop, implement and manage corporate and social responsibility within their respective organizations.
