MGT 349 International Management Seminar – Topic: Global Sustainable Development (3 credits)
This course introduces students to the issues involved with global sustainable development by bringing together management, social responsibility, and civic engagement. With the world’s attention on global environment issues highlighted with the “2012 Rio + 20 Convention” in June 2012 in Rio de Janeiro (following –up from the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio) and subsequent series of major world conferences, “sustainable development” and the rise of environmental issues became prominent on the world’s agenda. Even now, “Rio + 20” has addressed the progress of the world in this regard. That is the “macro view” of the topic, but the “micro view” is that individuals, communities, towns, cities, and states are the ultimate cogs that must work together towards civic engagement to accomplish the individual goals of sustainable development in order to have the macro view accomplished. Prerequisites: MGT 250 and Junior standing.
