|Description: ||Many of our courses, both required and optional, contain content & examples which utilize environmental aspects. However, five particular courses with a primary focus in environmental/sustainability concerns include:
1.) MARK 467 -- Consumer Behavior (this course examines the psychological, social, and cultural factors that impacts consumers. One of the main foci is the trend of green marketing and how firms are developing products and services that are environmentally friendly, as well as how consumers respond to such goods).
2.) FINC 557 -- Enterprise Risk Management (this course views the broadest dimensions of risk both as threats to human welfare and as opportunities for enriching human life. The ethical, social, and environmental dimensions of risk management are constantly referred to, ranging from world food security, to global climate change, to the treatment of individuals within the firm).
3.) ECON 522 -- Game Theory & Strategy (Purpose is to guide students in recognizing, analyzing, and solving problems in the business world by applying game theory. An important application of the material is on the topic of the environment & common resources -- one such example, Tragedy of Commons, is the misuse of an environmental resource to the point of exhaustion. The course examines win-win strategies with special attention to social, ethical, and environmental impact/considerations in playing business "games".)
4.) MGMT 443 -- Global Environmental Ethics (The course takes a more religious than philosophical approach to environmental ethics. The position taken is that the "ethics of decision making" is insufficient as a motivating force. Instead, an "ethics of vision" is required. How different belief systems, including economics, and their underlying worldviews give rise to different attitudes and dispositions regarding the environment is explored).
5). MGMT 441 – Business Ethics (This course is required of all Quinlan School of Business graduate students. The main objective of this course is to examine the ethical aspects of individual and corporate decision making. Among the outcomes of this course, students will have a foundation in ethical principles and reasoning and be able understand, analyze, and implement sound ethical decisions within a corporate context. One of the main issues discussed is corporate social responsibility. )|

|3: ||Quinlan students receive a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) U-Pass which allows unlimited access to CTA buses and trains. The use of public transportation in place of cars greatly reduces greenhouse gases and by encouraging students to use the U-Pass not only as a means of transportation to and from the University but in their everyday activities, Quinlan is helping to reduce carbon emissions.|
