Course Syllabus


At the time of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) world caused by planetary ‘grand challenges’ such as climate change, inequality, pandemics, social impact of supply chain practices, shortage of resources and increasing political turbulence, flourishing businesses around the world are forced to devote substantial efforts to responsible business practices and sustainable development. The idea of corporations as simply wealth creating organizations with no obligations to societies in which they operate and no care for the surrounding nature is no longer acceptable in the public eye. Flourishing businesses today are expected to act as agents of world benefit in making our planet a better place for living by contributing to the 17 United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) . Humanistic management is evolving as a new paradigm for business, based on the protection of dignity and the promotion of well-being rather than just wealth acquisition. This course aims to develop a new generation of responsible business leaders with a sustainability mindset that rests on a multi-disciplinary approach to learning and requires profound ecological awareness, development of systems thinking (knowing) combined with emotional (feeling) and spiritual (being) intelligence. Each session of this course is structured in three parts. The first part is called “Knowing” and focuses on the course content, such as global challenges (e.g. climate change, inequality, health) and how these issues relate to UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The second part, “Doing”, is dedicated to what we do by connecting theory to practice, for instance how to reach the SDGs, from large global institutions to small local social entrepreneurs. The third part is called “Being” and is centred on individual as point of departure: what we can and want to do? A range of tools such as in-class peer-discussions, reflections, meditation, developing self-awareness and compassion by means of individual and class assignments are used to help the students develop self-knowledge, which is then applied to areas related to the course content, for example conscious consumption, norms and inequalities, ethics and decision making, and career choices. In the final part of the course, the students integrate what they have learned in previous parts of the course, as well as in their master degree program in general, by carrying out an experiential learning research project for the international student-led platform AIM2Flourish.com. Students will be required to do assigned readings and videos prior to each class, participate in class discussions, perform group research projects and present their findings in the class. The first group research project will be dedicated to analysis of the autobiographical book “Good Morning Beautiful Business” by Judy Wicks. The second group project will be focused on case-studies of the sustainability practices worldwide. The third group research project “From Farm to Fork: SDG 12 & SDG 13 in the Food Industry” will be devoted to researching and analyzing company performance and making new data available on the WikiRate platform. There will be an intermediary individual and a final group assignment to control students’ knowledge acquisition. The intermediary assignment will be an in-class essay. Good news is that there will be no FINAL EXAM for this course! The final group assignment has been designed for the students instead of a traditional final exam. It will take a form of a group research project. Students will be given a task to develop and submit stories for the AIM2Flourish.com - world’s first global initiative steering future business leaders towards achieving the UN’s SDGs and a flourishing world for all. Business students around the world are using Appreciative Inquiry (strength-based interviews) and the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development as a lens to search out and report on world-changing innovations. This international initiative inspires the next generation of business leaders to build a better world by discovering new ways of doing business that are both profitable and progressive: Business as an Agent of World Benefit. It is hosted at the Fowler Center at the Weatherhead School of Management at the Case Western Reserve University and co-sponsored by the UN Global Compact, the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative.
