CSR Professional Certification: CSR PRO


Professional Certification Courses in Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate governance, business ethics and corporate social responsibility are areas of rapidly growing importance in which the GEGN has a leading research position particularly in the way it applies to emerging market organisations. Our programmes are designed for those wishing to better understand the complex and dynamic relationships between organisations and their stakeholders. The role of governance is to set out the rules within which an organisation must operate - and to ensure those rules are observed. Its focus is on a range of issues concerning the proper management of organisations. Corporate governance is thus central to the evolution of strategy and policy - and hence, effective management.

Since many GEGN certification participants and students are working, our professional certification courses brings together those with relevant experience and an interest in developing further professionally. One leading course in this direction is a jointly run programme between GEGN and Green Earth Alliance. This is a unique Professional Certification course in Corporate Social Responsibility, known as CSR PRO This course is relevant to directors and non-executive board members, managers, consultants and those interested in governance, corporate social responsibility and ethics in the private, public and voluntary sectors.
