Professor to discuss corporate social responsibility

Presenter Pornsit Jiraporn, associate professor of finance at Penn State Great Valley, will discuss how corporate social responsibility (CSR) is influenced by businesses in the same geographic area from noon to 1 p.m. Nov. 7, in Room 230 of the Main Building, 30 E. Swedesford Road, Malvern.

Jiraporn’s recent research indicates how awareness of CSR has recently intensified, how firms may be under pressure to become more socially responsible when their corporate neighbors adopt more aggressive CSR policies and what empirical evidence is consistent with this notion. This free presentation is part of the school’s monthly management division research showcase series and open to the public. To learn more visit
