Following the last year declaration of mandating Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in all companies, many private firms are off to set up a separate CSR department, and hence, will be needed to hire professionals for the same. In order to cater to this upcoming requirement of CSR professionals, CSR -Centre of Excellence (CoE) affiliated to Mysore University has planned to start a full-time MBA course in CSR, soon.
Mysore University is the first university not only in India but throughout Southeast Asia to start a full-fledged regular MBA course in CSR with a total of 120 seats available.
For admissions in MBA-CSR course, students will be selected on the basis of a personal interview and a group discussion. To execute placement activities, the centre has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA) and the Standing Conference of Public Enterprises.
Corporate Social Responsibility is a form of corporate self-regulation that is integrated into a business model. CSR plan works as a built-in, self-regulating mechanism whereby a business observes and ensures its active agreements and policies with the spirit of the law, ethical standards, and international norms.
Today, CSR is an emerging yet important area of management that carries huge opportunities for business mind students. An MBA in CSR will offer students an opportunity to learn management skills under a unique yet highly productive combination of social factors and business world. Students will get through a career in which they can handle social issues with business perspectives. The course is also allied with industrial relations, supply chain management and brand values. Overall, this course will help students in developing skill and knowledge to execute a business while not compromising the benefits of common people.
