BUS G 355 Sustainable Enterprise (3 cr.)  This course details the connection between
sustainable business strategies and maximizing long-term corporate profits, and
provides students with the skills necessary to assess firm strategy in terms of
sustainable development and pinpoint strengths and weaknesses. The course develops
a stakeholder model of the global corporation, where the firm has responsibility
to internal stakeholders, such as shareholders and employees, as well as external
shareholders, such as environmentally concerned non-governmental organizations (green
NGOs) that represent social concerns. This course will always highlight firm strategy
and what is in the company’s best interest, but often show that with the right rules
and social pressures the firm action can produce gains in terms of social welfare.
