Corporate Social Responsibility - Microsoft Case Study

Strategic Management Online Crash Course

In this crash course, you will learn central concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), presented in the book, “The Oxford Handbook of Corporate Social Responsibility”. To better understand the theory, we’ll present Microsoft’s case study, demonstrating how a company can respect the environment, be socially responsible and still generate growing returns for its investors.

With the support of the University of La Verne, IBS Americas offers crash courses, conferences, and other online events so that you can acquire relevant knowledge in Business Administration, preparing you to develop an international career.

Besides receiving an International Certificate equivalent to a 3-hour class, students who demonstrate academic excellence in this crash course, run for scholarships for ULV’s short-term programs.
