SOCIAL AND POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT

Social and Political Environment analyzes the social meaning and justification of business, defining its rights, obligations, and purposes. It conceives of the manager’s activity as an endeavor of political nature in the sense of art that promotes making things in organizations and their environment fair. This area conceives future scenarios that, based on the everyday political and social reality, lead business leaders to achieve a healthy balance in the interplay between the environment and business.
