A brief description of the certificate program(s):
The Summer School on CSR aims to provide advanced training on the identification of sustainability-related business opportunities, the inclusion of sustainability in the core of business strategy as well as on the resulting responsible corporate management to leading young researchers and professionals.

During workshop, the participants attend lectures given by distinguished academic faculty members, discuss case studies presented by experienced senior professionals, and experiment with relevant business cases.

The topics covered during the program revolve, but are not exclusive to, the following:
(1) Responsible organizations and sustainable management
(2) Corporate responsibility
(3) The UN SDGs and the UN Global Compact
(4) Sustainable value creation
(5) Business impact, accountability and reporting
(6) Collaborative transformation of the value chain

This program is a join collaboration between the CSR Hellas network, The American College of Greece, and the University of Crete.

The objectives of the Summer School on CSR are three:
(1) To raising awareness about corporate responsibility and the SDGs from leading experts in the field (academics and senior professionals).
(2) To provide advanced training in the management of sustainability in business. This objective is in line with the first UN Principle for Responsible Management Education.
(3) To promote interaction among current and future professionals, researchers and faculty members related to corporate responsibility and the SDGs, in order to disseminate and extend our knowledge regarding the effective approaches and challenges in meeting social and environmental responsibilities. This objective is in line with the fourth, fifth and sixth UN Principles for Responsible Management Education.

Following the lectures of the program, participants are divided into groups in order to work real case studies of companies that are members of CSR Hellas in order to produce a comprehensive report on said case studies and present it to the respective companies/organizations. Upon the successful completion of this step, participants receive a certificate on 'Corporate Sustainability Responsibility' after submitting the assigned business case and 10 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) or 6 US credit points from the University of Crete.
