Discussing Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability globally
Samuel Idowu, senior lecturer in Accounting and Finance BA, will be attending the fourth International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Sustainability, Ethics and Governance in July.
The conference, held in Perth, Australia, is one of the largest international conferences focusing on responsible business with delegates from over 40 nations expected to present their latest research and its practical implications for business, society, academia and politics. It is organised by the Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability in collaboration with the Global Corporate Governance Institute, which Sam also serves the role of Deputy CEO.
London Met is launching its first Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability MSc course in September 2017 where students will have a unique opportunity to use the University as a “living lab” and learn through actual projects.
“The launch of this course is a true milestone for London Met,” said Sam Idowu, course leader for Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability MSc and Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Adv Dip Pro Dev.
“Students will have the opportunity to learn and develop a set of skills tailored to a very niche, and growing, market. CSR and Sustainability is an area that is ever growing and the need for professionals is in high demand.”
The course will be taught in conjunction with London Met’s award-winning sustainability team where students will be able to learn both the practical and the theoretical aspects of CSR.
