University of Edinburgh Business School Masterclass on Sustainability Strategy, Leadership and Management – July 2015
The University of Edinburgh Business School will be hosting a 3 day Masterclass on Sustainability Strategy, Leadership and Management from the 13th to the 15 July 2015
The drive for sustainable development and corporate sustainability is reshaping the economic landscape, attracting regulatory attention, and creating new business opportunities.
Globally, organisations are faced with ever increasing expectations in meeting the world’s environmental and social challenges. They are also expected to balance many, sometimes conflicting, demands and pressures across different stakeholder groups. Developing a sustainable strategy requires robust decision making to balance economic, environmental and social consideration.
This masterclass will show participants how to integrate sustainability into their organisations and create responsible business practices across cultures and borders. It will feature a mix of interactive discussions, guest lectures, practical exercises and site visits to sustainable businesses.
The masterclass is delivered by Dr Kenneth Amaeshi, Reader in Strategy & International Business and Director of University of Edinburgh Business School Sustainable Business Initiative, Prof. Jens Hagendorff, Martin Currie Chair in Finance and Investment, University of Edinburgh and Prof. Richard Harrison, Chair in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, University of Edinburgh.
