Business practices fundamentally affect all aspects of life, including our communities and the natural environment. In this course students will explore how the growing trend in socially and environmentally conscious management is being shaped by intrepreneurs and entrepreneurs. This course is designed to introduce broad management concepts that will help every student make informed workplace decisions. Environmental entrepreneurship will be observed through three main lenses: food systems, human environments (built systems), and the sustainable travel sector, with the end goal that students will understand the key components of a successful organization. Students will also learn to create a business plan that builds on an entrepreneurial idea of their choice.
