The module is distinctly inter-disciplinary in nature, taking into account that issues of ethics and sustainability have been discussed in a variety of academic disciplines as well as policy and managerial fields for a long time. The objective of this module is to equip students with an understanding of key issues and debates around ecological sustainability, governance and corporate ethics and responsibility, reflecting the fact that these discourses have been gaining in importance in the business world and society at large in recent years. This module will introduce a range of theories to understand the relationship between management and corporations on the one hand, and society and nature on the other. A range of practical cases and examples will be drawn on that range from environmental disasters to corporate greed and from executive pay to ethical bottled water. The module will be very interactive, while students are expected to engage with the topics discussed in a critical, theoretical and practical manner.
