Sustainability
Courses in Sustainability: Yes
Sustainability course is: Optional
Description: Students will be exposed to the concept of Sustainability, as defined by The World Business Council for Sustainable Development: “Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable – to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” They will explore how innovation, competitive advantage, marketing, and decision analysis can be used to create and communicate a profitable sustainability strategy for business.
Research Opportunities in Sustainability: Yes
Description: Albers supports sustainability research in the same ways it supports any scholarship. The summer grants are available to support scholarship. We have won university approval for a Center for Sustainability and Environmental Justice, which will begin in September 2012. That Center will raise money specific to sustainability research.
School's environmental commitment:  
1: In September 2011 we began a Sustainable Business MBA specialization. Courses for this year have been filled and enthusiastically reviewed by students. In Fall 2011, India Study Tour was organized that went carbon neutral.
2: In April we will form chapters of NetImpact at both undergraduate and MBA levels.
3: Albers and the Law School will co-sponsor a Sustainability Symposium in May, with speakers and discussion along three major themes—Making Sustainability Legal (regulations that mandate or could mandate sustainability), Making Sustainability Viable (business plans that follow sustainability to success), and Making Sustainability Just (community and social plans that incorporate sustainability). Albers will promote the event and participate with speakers, discussants and attendees.
