Corporations & Society

For students interested in investment management who want to achieve a better understanding of the environmental and social portfolio risks, and for students curious about how the fundamental motivations and practices of companies and financial actors can represent both a force for and against society’s interests. Focused on understanding a) how companies and investors can be barriers or enablers of responsible business behavior; b) the different strategies to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities across industries and asset classes; and c) what individuals (e.g. students, shareholders, citizens, managers and politicians), organizations and the society can do to trigger business and finance change toward sustainability.
