In this course students explore individual and organizational responsibilities, and the changes needed toward greater responsible leadership and sustainable actions that address today’s complex and pressing socio-economic and environmental challenges.
As the title suggests, the course is separated into interrelated parts at an individual and organizational level. Students will be provided with a framework for greater self-reflection and self-awareness as a starting point for becoming responsible leaders.
Students explore theoretical and practical aspects related to the organizational changes required to move from business as usual thinking to a business as unusual paradigm that fosters sustainable business practices and processes.
