Our paper performs a comparative analysis of the development level of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) concept in Romania and Poland. The descriptive part of our study focuses on literature review in order to present the latest trends regarding CSR programs and practices implemented by both large and small companies originating from these two countries. Having in mind the idea that universities are assigned with the vital role in educating and disseminating socially responsible behaviour on both individuals and enterprises, we shifted our area of investigation on the issue of CSR education within Romanian and Polish context. As we noticed lack of research on the effectiveness of CSR courses in Romania as well as in Poland, we designed an empirical study which aims to shed light on the main factors that determine the level of CSR awareness among Bachelor graduates from a Romanian university.
