Consider your footprint
As an undergrad you take a course in Business and Sustainability, or you can take an elective in Social Entrepreneurship. As an MBA student, you learn an ethics framework in your first week of classes, and you are expected to use it.
Through your courses, co-op work terms, and experiential programs, which include topics that range from ethics to environment, co-operatives to climate change, green-washing to life-cycle analysis, you will learn the skills to help you lead your future colleagues and their companies into new, more profitable, more sustainable ways of doing business. Just ask our alumni; they are already doing it.
We even have a centre to make sure this all happens - The Centre for Social and Sustainable Innovation. Guided by the United Nations’ six Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), we help set the example of values and action for our students.
Every year since 2009, we have measured our own greenhouse gas emissions and taken steps to continuously reduce them. Our students and alumni have an even bigger impact on the world because they have the attitude and learn the skills to lead their colleagues and their companies into new, more profitable, more sustainable ways of doing business. We are already very close to our goal that will see, by the end of the 2013-14 school year, sustainability addressed in every single one of our core courses and in our specializations.
The possibilities are infinite – just like your potential to improve the way the world does business.
