Sustainable Enterprise  (M2-S1)


Brief overview

In this course, we examine whether businesses can credibly contribute to the shift towards a more sustainable future. In particular, we analyze the economic and legal challenges that arise when firms invest more/only resources in sustainable and socially responsible endeavors.

Here is a sampling of the questions we will address:

  • What are the drivers and challenges of adopting sustainability strategies for the traditional/commercial enterprises?
  • Are social enterprises (enterprises with a social mission at their core) better at delivering inclusion and social innovation?
  • What are the existing toolkits to evaluate the social impact of the organization and to map out the diverse interests of stakeholders?
