Orlando, Sep. 12 /CSRwire/ - Today it is critically important for Corporate Responsibility Executives to understand how the role they have in their companies integrates and impacts society and their company. It is not enough to understand the work of Corporate Responsibility, executives must understand how organizations are managed, how decisions are made, and how to communicate the value of their work. Most importantly, CR executives must be able to align their work with the values of the business they represent.

Applications are now open for Advanced Business Acumen. The deadline to apply is September 30, 2016.

Advanced Business Acumen, one of three programs of the Corporate Responsibility Executive Institute, offered through a partnershinp of ACCP and the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame, prepares CR executives to:

  • Focus on rigorous problem solving through the use of values based decisions 
  • Develop an understanding of the financial metrics that guide and inform corporate decisions
  • Provide foundational knowledge of what the supply chain looks like to form an understanding of how it impacts corporate responsibility

In the words of a recent graduates, “The Corporate Responsibility Executive Institute completely changed the way I think and evaluate situations. It has helped me to think more like my senior leadership team which in turn aligns my actions to their expectations.”

CR Executives from Aetna, Capital One, Caterpillar, Georgia Pacific, Hilton, Johnson & Johnson, Kellogg’s, KPMG, New York Life, Norfolk Southern, PwC, Southwest, William Blair, and WWE are among those that have attended programs offered through the Corporate Responsibility Executive Institute.

The Institute develops CR executives capable of leading CR as it continues to evolve as an essential business component,” said Timothy A. A. Stiles, National Practice Leader, KPMG’s Development & Exempt Organizations.
