DDBA 8522 - Seminar in Sustainability


(3 sem. cr.) The various environmental crises facing the planet threaten the human race. Therefore, the primary challenge for business is to conduct itself in a responsible manner through sustainable decisions. That means more than anticipating continuous profitability. Students in this seminar course explore what it means to be sustainable from an environmental perspective and examine the implications for business in terms of resource consumption, materials processing and disposal, and the impacts of the products made and distributed. Students analyze natural systems and how their condition influences doing business in a global economy. They also examine the long-term implications for conducting business globally. Students fine-tune critical-thinking skills by formulating an original research topic, which they discuss with their peers. They accomplish course objectives by examining current information through extensive use of recent journal articles and papers as well as classic articles and papers related to the field of study.
