Why ESSCA – MSc International and Sustainable Management
"The challenges faced by business organizations worldwide concerning Corporate Social Responsibility are vast. The turmoil we have experienced over the past few years, from both an environmental and societal perspective, should serve to encourage companies to accelerate their CSR initiatives: from issues related to global warming, the protection of biodiversity and natural resources, to the impact of the digital revolution and rising inequalities..., there is much work to be done. It is by training and accompanying the next generation of managers to face these issues and by equipping them with the right skills, understanding, and resources that they will be able to make a positive impact on the organizations they work in". Véronique Lebreton, CSR and Banking Inclusion Manager, Fédération Nationale du Crédit Agricole
