Issues of sustainability and ethics pervade the business environment and leader decision making in organizations. Yet, how to meet the challenges is not always clear. To address these issues, we survey the nascent field of sustainability, with particular emphasis on the interplay between sustainability and ethics. Drawing from emerging work in academic and practitioner literatures, will learn key terminology, identify major challenges, and analyze best and worst practices in ethics and sustainability. Opportunity to participate in stimulating class discussions, interact with guest speakers, engage in in-depth case studies, research and design ethical and sustainable business practices, and develop personal ethical action plans to serve as a moral compass for their own work as managers and employees in (sustainable) business organizations.
