Description/achievement of initiative

At the end of 2011 our university, in partnership with the Global Compact Network Bulgaria and CSR Bulgaria, started to create a master's program designed to prepare specialists with practical skills for the development of corporate social responsibility, who are able to take decisions based on socially responsible behavior and to promote sustainable development policy in their organizations. The program will be launched in autumn 2012 under the name ""Corporate social responsibility - financial management.""
