Corporate Social Responsibility has never been more relevant to our organisations – it ensures businesses have a positive impact on the world and enables society to reach its goals. The Cranfield Management and Corporate Sustainability MSc will teach you the practicalities of how real businesses successfully embed sustainability into their core business purpose and strategy.

The Cranfield Management and Corporate Sustainability MSc is a highly practical course featuring a distinctive blend of theory and application. You will gain the knowledge and skills required for a career focused on corporate social responsibility, and working with some of our partner organisations you will put this learning into action by working on sustainability projects, finding real business solutions to complex sustainability issues. You will understand, and be able to respond to, complicated social, environmental and economic issues in the context of both national and international business.

You will gain valuable insight into sustainability in practice through a series of master classes and presentations from specialists in the field. Previous master class topics have included sustainability marketing and environmental management systems. Students have also had the opportunity to attend master classes with: – Marks & Spencer at their London Head Office – Diageo at The Innovation Forum on Sustainable Drinks Industry conference at their Head Office – Solitaire Townsend, co-founder of Futerra
