In today's world, questions about the company's environmental and social responsibility are becoming increasingly intertwined with the financial responsibility the company has towards its shareholders. Finnish companies today are expected to be aware of the environmental impact of the business, working conditions and human rights throughout the value chain. This also places new demands on future business leaders. In order to be able to offer students an opportunity to advance in questions regarding corporate responsibility and sustainable development - and to have this confirmed on their degree grades - a study unit is offered in corporate responsibility at Hanken.

The introduction of the study unit is also in line with Hanken's decision to include the International Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME; see also UN PRME  at Hanken).

The purpose of the study unit in corporate responsibility is to offer an opportunity for students to receive training in corporate responsibility regardless of the major subject. The study unit consists of courses that specifically focus on issues related to corporate social and environmental responsibility, diversity and gender, and sustainability issues in organizations. Further focus is on explicit questions about the societal impact of the companies. The perspective as a whole is multidisciplinary as all courses are given in different subjects. Thus, the whole does not belong to any particular institution but is administered by the subject of logistics and corporate social responsibility at Hanken.

The study module in Corporate Responsibility at Hanken has been an excellent occasion for me to deepen my knowledge about CSR both from environmental and social point of view. I like the way professors have encouraged critical thinking. Course include both academic and corporate perspectives that help to broaden the vision of the complex world we are living in and tackle challenges modern societies are encountering currently.
