Inhalt: The course adopts a managerial perspective to understand the interactions and negotiations between corporations, their stakeholders, and the media (incl. social media) in national and international contexts. The course introduces main theoretical perspectives on corporate responsibility (CR) that address the business case for CR and creating shared value, the political theory of the firm, neo-institutional perspectives, critical perspectives, and the transformative role of communication. Drawing on these views, the course aims to provide students with new insights in key practical areas of CR. These include, for example, self-regulation standards for sustainability, CR in global supply chains, how to organize for CR, the challenges of specialized CR functions such as chief sustainability and ethics officers, and how to deal with eruptive crises and scandals in the media and social media. Working in small groups, students will develop a teaching case study about a specific CR issue over the course of the semester – that is, a story that is ambiguous, full of conflict, complex, tension-building and ends with more questions than answers, leaving the audience with having to take a decision. Students are supposed to collect a small sample of qualitative field data to set up their case story, identify a protagonist and an important CR issue that remains unsolved. The course will feature a small workshop on case study writing and allow time for the brainstorming and discussion of ideas. Each group will present its work-in-progress case study towards the end of the course to receive feedback from fellow students and the lecturer. Excellent case studies might be further developed together with the course lecturer and considered for publication subsequent to the course.

Inhalt: This seminar will make students familiar with the emerging debate on "corporate digital responsibility" (CDR). In recent years, CDR has emerged as an umbrella term for the debate around corporate responsibilities in relation to the digital transformation and the proliferation of digital technologies in business and society. In this seminar, we will explore theories and concepts related to the term, and how businesses attempt to live up to societal expectations in the digital age! The module will combine lectures with interactive formats, group work and guest lectures.

14-täglich | Dienstag | 12:15 - 15:45 | 18.10.2021 - 04.02.2022 | C 14.201
Einzeltermin | Di, 19.10.2021, 12:00 - Di, 19.10.2021, 16:00 | C 40.175

Inhalt: Technologies are seen as contributing to problems as well as solutions for sustainable development: technology is an enabler for desirable developments and involves risks regarding undesirable developments. Thus, this module covers key issues of technology development and sustainability. We will discuss key theoretical perspectives on technology in society and apply these perspectives to the field of biotechnology. Students will develop a paper on ‘technology in society’, applying theoretical perspectives to a concrete case. We will discuss topics in class and students will benefit from providing and receiving constructive feedback.
