MGMT 5614 - Eco-Entrepreneurship

The concepts of sustainable development and energy management are explored as they impact current and future opportunities and challenges related to the design, development and commercialization of sustainable products, services, technologies and new business models.

The course explores the nature of the “Triple Bottom Line”-the simultaneous delivery of economic, social, and environmental value-and teaches students to apply models, tools, best practices and frameworks to incorporate social and environmental dimensions into a business. This could include the creation of a ‘B corporation’ as well as other strategies for identification and ethical exploitation of business opportunities.

Course design enables future entrepreneurs identify specific “green” opportunities, develop a comprehensive business plan and operationalize the plans. The course will include lectures, case studies, and guest speakers to illustrate issues, challenges and opportunities related to eco-entrepreneurship.

Open to MBA students only.
