Teacher Dr. Stephen FROST
Course Description Business activities and corporate decisions are under more scrutiny from different stakeholders nowadays. Business leaders are increasingly expected to balance short- and long-term interests for economic, social and environmental sustainability and to maintain a balance between three pillars of sustainability – people, planet, and profits. This course aims to equip students with an acumen to understand the changing role of business in society, the environment, and the global economy. The course will introduce the mega trends in driving triple-bottom line strategies for present and future. Students will reflect on the core concepts and get hold of the apparatuses for responsible and sustainable business, and develop a mindset in recognizing opportunities for sustainable innovation and development.
