The book Academic Social Responsibility - Sine Qua Non for Corporate Social Performance is our endeavor to disseminate the awareness of the significance of responsible (especially management) education not only for academic stakeholders, but for the whole society. It is an interesting combination of theories, studies, recognitions, and experiences gained by authors from different countries, institutions, who function in various institutional and cultural conditions.

The book is divided into “Introduction” and three parts: “Towards the Socially Responsible University”, “Socially Responsible Education for Enterprise Development”, “Human Voice in Responsible Management Education”. The authors present fresh concepts for socially responsible university, their impact on real business performance as well as discussions on specific issues when implementing academic social responsibility in practice.
