Sustainability

Focused at the intersection of markets and society, we'll examine how social and environmental factors are reshaping the competitive landscape of business, and explore how organizations can rethink their strategies to attain and sustain a competitive advantage as more stringent demands are placed on the role of business in society. The course maps out the complex and evolving interactions between business and society along the value chain; depends the notions of value creation, value capture, and value distribution central to strategy; explores market dynamics with and without profit motives; and unpacks promising sources of disruptive innovation.
