ISB – Creating Value through CSR Programme

Learn how doing good can lead to good business with ISB’s executive programme on Creating Value through CSR.


Over the years CSR has evolved into a function corporates take a keen interest on. The need to formulate and execute clear CSR strategies has become imperative for organisations to measure the success of their intended objectives. However, the fact remains that doing good definitely leads to good business. No wonder then that a greater number of organisations across the globe are focusing on developing CSR policies that benefit both the society and business itself.

Closer home, after the 2013 amendment to The Companies Act in India, companies are mandated to spend at least 2% of their net profits on CSR initiatives and build a ‘CSR Committee’ to ensure the company’s compliance with India Inc.’s measures towards nation-building. To ensure this happens, businesses must streamline resource allocation, strategic planning, execution, monitoring, and most of all, impact evaluation.

Creating Value through CSR

An executive programme focused on providing insights on CSR strategies

The ISB’s three-day programme on Creating Value through CSR provides insights to companies on how to build a CSR strategy that is anchored in goodwill, while generating sustainable value for the company.

With the action-learning approach that the ISB’s Centre for Executive Education adopts, participants are typically empowered with the insights to not only recognize the power that social value can have on a company’s bottom line, but also how to build and implement strategies that are optimized for social return on investment. They learn how to leverage social good for brand value, and even expand their markets through social development.

  • Developing a value-driven CSR strategy
  • Weaving together the functions of CSR, branding, and marketing
