A person wirt a book
On this page you can find information on the Corporate Responsibility study module for degree students.

The minor takes a cross-disciplinary approach combining courses from different subjects - Marketing, Supply Chain Management and Social Responsibility, Politics and Business, Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Management and Organisation, Commercial Law, Economics, and Corporate Governance. Hence, the module is not a part of any specific subject/department at Hanken, however,  it is administered by the subject of Supply Chain Management and Social Responsibility

In order have it marked as a minor in your transcripts and degree, you need minimum 25 ECTS. As a Hanken degree student, you can take courses from the course list below without restrictions. 

You can also take comparable elective courses at other universities in Finland or abroad and include them in the CR minor, but the courses have to be approved by the coordinator of the study module in order to include them in the minor. If you want to include courses taken at other universities in the minor, we recommend you to first check with the coordinator (prme@hanken.fi) that the course can be included before taking the course. 

Students at Hanken who complete the module/minor can have it marked on their transcripts. However, please note that courses that you want to include in the study module should not be a part of any other study program (major or minor studies). Also, note that you have to apply to have it marked in your transcripts; see instructions below in ' Process after you complete the minor.'

Degree students in Vaasa should choose courses offered only at Vaasa campus. Currently, there are eight courses (including 1140-V 'Introduction to Corporate Social Responsibility')  and together they are enough to obtain 25 credits, but there are not a wide range of courses to choose from. Therefore, students if they wish, can complement with courses taken at other universities in Finland or abroad. Please note that courses that you want to include in the study module should not be a part of any other study program (major or minor studies).
