Corporate governance is a controversial topic for academics and managers. Despite of the great number of studies on this issue, there is still an open debate on the best practices on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), its influence on performance and the conception of CSR as a strategy or something even more important that should be in the very essence and nature
of any organization.
This course seeks to expose the state of the art on CSR, to indicate the main research gaps and define research opportunities on this topic.
