MGT 360 Social and Sustainable Venturing

Overview of Course

Do you want to make a difference in the world? This course provides insight into how to frame problems and devise solutions for the world’s most pressing challenges. These problems relate to both social issues like inequity, poverty, and disease as well as environmental issues like inadequate sanitation, water pollution, and climate change. Students will learn how to combine business and management skills with imagination, passion, empathy and courage to effectively tackle social problems. Through experiential learning, case analysis, group exercises, and presentations, students will acquire knowledge and capabilities for the creation and analysis of mission driven for-profit and non-profit social and sustainable ventures. Our voyage presents a unique learning environment in which students may observe different manifestations of a global challenge and be exposed to different solutions grounded in local environments, which will make the learning experience even more rewarding.
