Many experts and practitioners have realized that the traditional approaches of government and the non-profit sector will not - alone - be enough to solve the myriad of social and environmental challenges facing the world. Rather than seeing big business as "part of the problem" many are considering how the immense power of the private sector can contribute to addressing social and environmental issues. This course will allow students to explore the growing phenomenon of "socially and environmentally conscious capitalism," a more considered type of capitalism with the potential to be a platform for social and environmental change.
