Corporate social responsibility (CSR) deals with the impact of organisational activities on society and the environment. Presently, corporate responsibility has become an extremely important factor influencing the development of companies, their profits and brand image. Socially responsible enterprises offer donations and support charitable activities, social actions, as well as degrees related to environmental studies. They also award grants and fellowships, providing support for disaster affected areas and other relief causes.

Universities and business schools offer various Master's degrees, specialisations and executive short courses in the corporate social responsibility. Some MBA (Master of Business Administration) programmes offer CSR concentrations, while other schools hold individual study courses on topics such as responsible management for sustainability, green management, social responsibility management, global market and ethical responsibility, and others.

Degrees in corporate social responsibility generally emphasise a multi-disciplinary approach on social, ethical and environmental issues. They aim to equip students with competencies including business knowledge, understanding of economic factors, as well as communication and leadership skills. Global awareness and risk management abilities are also highly valuable to corporate responsibility professionals.

Professionals in CSR practice in different work environments from non-profit organisations, to corporations to governmental bodies or consultancy firms.
