AQA BUSS4 Pre Released Research Theme

Discussion in 'Business studies' started by nattybee, Feb 3, 2011.

  1. Hi all,
    Thought we could share ideas on how to tackle this years theme of Corporate Social Responsibility....
    To get the ball rolling....
    I always use M&S as an example of CSR - their Plan A that they released a few years ago is very comprehensive.
    This link takes you straight to their Plan A mini site... lots on here to get students thinking.....

    [​IMG] looking forward to other ideas!

  3. The Social Resonsibility of Business is to make profit - get them to read this classic article from 1970 written by Milton Friedman to start them thinking about an alternative argument

    http://www.colorado.edu/studentgroups/libertarians/issues/friedman-soc-resp-business.html

    Also don't forget about classics abusing CSR such as Enron and Parmalat and BCCI -

    If they choose Apple - all that glisters isn't gold there either -
