The curriculum delves into environmental and social impact assessment, providing a comprehensive comprehension of how to assess and mitigate the environmental and social impact of corporate activities.

The programme emphasises sustainable business practices, guiding you in developing strategies to integrate sustainable practices seamlessly into the core operations of an organisation. Regulatory compliance is another crucial aspect covered, ensuring that you understand the legal and regulatory dimensions of corporate responsibility and sustainability, thereby fostering responsible business conduct.
