Introducing our DBA in Corporate Social Responsibility. The world is rapidly facing new environmental, economic and social challenges, and corporations more than ever need to be proactive in confronting them. Future business leaders will be called on to help solve the next great problems of the 21st century.
With that in mind, GBS has developed a doctorate program that allows students to specialize in CSR issues and benefit from the supervision and mentorship of Professor Michael Hopkins, one of the world's leading experts on both the theory and practice of CSR.
The GBS DBA encourages practical implementation of the concepts learned in class. Students on the program will be invited to join an international network of CSR practitioners and researchers such as in club.csrfi.com. Special emphasis will be placed on students developing their own CSR initiatives.
The program requires the successful completion of 240 credits (which represent roughly 2400 hours of work). The program consists of 6 courses (15 ECTS), 2 ´check in´ assessments (5 ECTS) and the final thesis (140 ECTS). The six courses are:
- Management Research Perspectives
- Developing Business Intelligence
- Problem Solving Using Qualitative Research Methods
- Problem Solving Using Quantatitive Research Methods
- Contemporary Issues in Business
- Reflecting on Business Practice
