Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is no longer just a fringe topic. Global Fortune 500 companies spend a tremendous amount of resources managing and demonstrating their corporate social responsibility. This is the new reality of the business world for which we are preparing students. As such, how do we effectively integrate and incorporate CSR into strategic management courses? Should CSR be a stand-alone topic that receives its own week or two? Should it be taught as a separate course? Or is it a topic that should be fully integrated into the duration of a strategy course? This session is designed for our panelists—all experienced teachers of strategic management and of CSR—and audience members to interact and discuss how they have tackled these questions, highlighting what has worked, what hasn’t worked, and providing practical tips on how we can all teach CSR as a strategic management topic.
