Overview

The course covers a broad range of business practices that impact on the question of business risk. Topics range, for instance, from environmental concerns to product safety to corrupt business practices and from labour and human rights issues to contemporary developments in corporate governance. The course also explores the oversight by Boards of Directors of business practices implicating risk and the implementation of appropriate business practices by Executive Management.

Institutional investors are becoming increasingly concerned about business practices implicating risk of the companies they are prepared to invest in. Investors with approximately $60 trillion under management, representing more than 30% of all the shares in all the stock exchanges in the world, have pledged that they will integrate responsible business thinking into their investment analysis and decision making to help elevate risk. This course will give you an oversight of all risk factors affecting business and investment, and is delivered by one of the pioneers in Europe on the topic of Corporate Responsibility, Professor Dennis Driscoll.

  • The extent to which a whole range of responsible business practices implicate risk
