Abstract

This paper sought to understand the current teaching approaches and course offerings of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) within the context of management education in Australian and British university business offerings. Identified in this qualitative research are the complexities and challenges of teaching CSR, its current relevance within management programs and how, by improved teaching and integration, CSR would increase its relevance to the field of management. In specific terms, whilst there are challenges, there are indications of growth in CSR courses within management programs. There appears little difference between CSR offered as a stand alone course or embedded into other courses. Given the findings, CSR is positioned as a holistic entity with a combination of offerings preferable. Finally, the inclusion of research activities that create connection between organisations, educators, students and the courses in business schools was identified, with research informing practice and in return practice informing teaching.
