CSR aligns strongly with other managerial accounting topics typically taught in an MBA Program such as the balanced scorecard and triple-bottom line reporting. In putting forward this suggestion, this paper proposes a definition of CSR, reviews recent literature relating to CSR, and provides several strategies for teaching and assessing students’ understanding and appreciation of CSR. In the results section of the paper, a content analysis of student essays provides an insight into how students view CSR. The paper concludes with an overview of what is attainable by teaching CSR in a Managerial Accounting MBA course.</p> 2018-04-19T08:53:09+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://clutejournals.com/index.php/JSM/article/view/10154 Municipal Utilities: An Overview Of Rate Models, Sustainability And The Effects On Affordability 2018-12-11T16:07:17+00:00 Donald A.
