Access from EThOS:
The concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is not new to the 21st century. Its historical development preceded the present century. However, with many major corporate failures in the early 21st century as well as the global financial crisis in 2008 which have affected and continue to affect the economies of nations globally as well as the livelihood of the citizens of these nations, the concept of CSR has appeared to have taken a new turn in the corporate world, at least in the context of business education in MBA programmes. There is quantitative evidence from the Beyond Grey Pinstripes surveys and reports that many major MBA programmes around the world have, in this century, gradually increased their foci on CSR issues through an increase in requirements and courses which pursue and study the integration of social, environmental and economic issues. The dissertation gives a brief summary of the historical development of CSR, notes the quantitative evidence on MBA programmes as mentioned above, and observes and records how CSR is qualitatively interpreted in courses on CSR in these MBA programmes.
