Abstract: The principal aim of this study is to analyze the internal and external Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) functions attributed by university students to enterprises in their habitual economic activity, just as the influence of academic background in such subjective perceptions. Self-reported data was collected through a structured questionnaire from a total sample of 400 Spanish undergraduates. Descriptive and multivariate analysis revealed a generalized awareness of the relevance of socially responsible criteria, particularly when concerned to relationships with employees and consumers. Moreover, students in Experimental and Technical fields showed higher expectations of enterprises' social responsibilities than those within Social, Health and Humanities.
