KurzbeschreibungThe lecture explores current challenges of corporate sustainability and prepares students to become champions for sustainable business practices. In the Autumn Semester 2020, the lecture will be taught fully online. During the lecture phase (weeks 1-6) students will learn the core concepts of corporate sustainability. During the track phase (week 7-13) students work in teams on sustainability chal
LernzielAfter completing this course, students will be able to:
- Assess the limits and the potential of companies to sustainable development
- Critically evaluate and formulate statements, decisions, and arguments in the context of corporate sustainability
- Recognize and realize opportunities for corporate sustainability in a business environment
InhaltThe course has a lecture phase (week 1-6) and a track phase (week 7-13). During the lecture phase, students will learn about why corporate sustainability matters, complete several video tutorials and e-modules to understand important concepts of corporate sustainability, and critically apply these concepts in the context of a case study. The lecture phase builds the foundation for the track phase.
During the track phase, students participate in one of four tracks in which researchers coach teams of 4-5 students towards a final project. Our ambition is that students improve their analytic and organizational skills and can confidently pursue corporate sustainability in a professional setting. Course participants share the result of their group work in a group puzzle session.
The course concludes with a reflection session and the final exam.
