“A phenomenal class for hands-on consulting experience, practice in developing creative business solutions, and thinking critically about CSR issues. From designing social media campaigns to developing sustainability metrics, each group had a valuable project with clients that were truly excited about our ideas.”—Victoria Chiang, B.S., Environmental Economics ‘10
“Professor McElhaney’s Strategic CSR course was a highlight of my first year experience at Haas. The experience presents a great opportunity to learn and explore all things CSR through the lens of a business manager. The course is not designed to be a feel-good, anti-capitalism class, but instead offers a very realistic account of the challenges and rewards of developing, championing and executing CSR in the workplace that not only makes the world a better place, but makes solid, justifiable business sense.”—Paul Collins, Haas MBA ‘11
