AR 611 Sustainability Transition and Action Research Select Term:
The purpose of the course is to understand how business transition to sustainable development can be guided and accelerated with action oriented, interdisciplinary and applied approaches. The course takes a critical perspective on business as usual by exploring the intersections between sustainable development agenda, markets and business organisations from a multi stakeholder-multi actor perspective. Topics covered include the reconceptualization of the purpose of the firm and its implications for governance, the transformation of financial markets and transformative networks as change agents. The course uses problem-based learning (have students discuss different perspectives on complex real-life issues and dive into different literatures to formulate critical analysis, hypotheses and ideas for change) with experimental learning-by-doing (co-creating solutions, testing and refining and evaluating).
