As an MBA, I wondered if I would derive as much value from the programs offered through CREI. Short answer – I did! While some of the concepts presented were the same, when viewing them through the lens of Corporate Responsibility, the takeaways of how I could apply the knowledge were very impactful and immediately applicable.
I made the decision to obtain my CCRE because it is imperative to understand how I can add value to my company through our CSR initiatives. In order for anything to be sustainable, it must have value. We know that CSR has value to society. Understanding how to increase its value to my company is what will help me grow the program. The programs of CREI gave me an understanding of what matters to other internal stakeholders and insight on how I can gain their support by supporting their goals.
