Are you fascinated by the social impact of investments?

10 September 2016
Professionals of the 'Social Impact Analysis of Global Investments' community discuss CSR and social impact assessment as a management tool. Interested to join them? Working with senior professionals in the field and boosting your skills and expertise. In a dedicated team you will work on a project with actual impact on business practice.

Companies primarily focus on financial gains when making investment decisions. From a societal perspective, this is increasingly seen as an insufficient approach. In this learning community, students of various levels, backgrounds and ages will work together, coach and challenge each other, and enhance each other’s learning experiences in the field of social impact analysis. Staff, external business relations, and alumni will join and provide support and access to information and resources. The purpose is to develop a `teaching case’ which can be used for training purposes within and outside business school curricula. With the goal to come up with a well informed and nuanced picture of the recent development of a nickel mine, set up by a multinational company in Papua New Guinee. It is a real story of a large multinational company that develops a huge open pit mine seemingly without taken into account the effects on the direct natural and social surroundings. The activities in this group consist of a broad study of the developments around mining investment and social impact assessment in general.
