International Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability

BUS 180
Copenhagen, Denmark
Profs: Robert Straughan and Elizabeth Oliver

Examines the debate regarding the roles of business, government, not-for-profits, and individual members of society in balancing the economic and social consequences of commercial business activities. Students look at a range of businesses and industries, both in the US and Denmark, to compare and contrast what firms are (and are not) doing to simultaneously maximize both traditional business outcomes and social impact. While in Denmark, considered to be one of the most progressive countries in terms of sustainable business, students will visit several firms for first-hand conversations with managers about the challenges of leading sustainable businesses.
