The Quiet Evolution of CSR in China – CKGSB MBA New York Event
2014-06-11  - New York

Chinese companies are on the move. Over the last decade, more and more Chinese companies expanded internationally and have operations abroad. At the same time, multinational companies firmly established themselves in the business landscape of the Middle Kingdom. This business expansion prompted multinational companies, as well as Chinese companies, to focus on corporate social responsibility (CSR). The role of CSR reporting is enhancing awareness, monitoring business practices and restraining harmful occurrences on social and environmental elements. As China’s role on the world business stage increases, understanding the role of CSR in multinational and Chinese companies is of growing importance for rising executives and business leaders.

Join “The Quiet Evolution of CSR in China,” to discover the variances between how Chinese companies and multinational companies conduct CSR in China and to understand the burgeoning relationship between CSR outreach and Chinese NGOs.  The CKGSB’s 2013 MBA class will host two speakers from Beijing to bring these insights to the Big Apple. Participants can expect not only to interact with the speakers during Q&A session and the after-event, networking social, but also to gain insights in:

  • China based companies and NGOs current philanthropic practices and implementation cases
  • Difference and similarities between multinational and Chinese companies CSR outreach efforts
  • Challenges and success China based companies and NGOs experience
  • Future developments of CSR and how it will influence the business landscape
  • Multinational and Chinese companies growing partnership with NGOs
