Dear Max, are there also discussions and papers about all the issues you mention. Or is this just for notice and not for in-school use further…

Dear Eric, There is a Community on Corporate Responsibility for MBA students, alumni and practitioners were several of these issues are further discussed through forums. At the same time, as an example, the posts made by Joaquin Garralda on Corporate Responsibility or by Javier Carrillo, on Eco-Intelligent Management, are also discussed in class. If you want further information in regards to the community or anything else, please contact me.
