DESCRIPTION
This course integrates business objectives with the principles and practices of environmental sustainability, in the context of a "live" sustainability project with a client organization. Throughout the quarter, teams of 3-5 students work on projects with an enterprise that has requested Kellogg's help in addressing an issue related to sustainability. Each team works on its project throughout the quarter with the guidance of the faculty advisor and the client sponsor and presents the result to the client management in the end. The work and meeting schedule of each team is agreed with the faculty advisor and does not need to be during scheduled class time. The course also includes a small lecture based component that provides a crash course of sustainability management topics relevant to the projects. The class is suitable for students who want to pursue a career in sustainability, and for those who are interested in exposure to sustainability aspects of any business. No background in sustainability is needed. Enrollment is by application for specific projects. This course may not be dropped once the student has been matched with a project or sponsor.
