Curricula: "Concentration & Major in Managing for Sustainability (Selective Courses)

    The new Bachelor of Commerce Concentration and Major in Managing for Sustainability at the Desautels Faculty of Management (McGill University) includes required and optional courses from within the Faculty of Management, the McGill School of Environment, and the Department of Geography, which are complemented by a wide array of electives from departments and academic units across the full spectrum of sustainability disciplines. New courses such as Systems Thinking and Sustainability, Technology & Innovation for Sustainability, and Sustainability Consulting have been added to established courses in Strategies for Sustainability and Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation. The link to the program flyer gives a broader overview academic requirement of the concentration and major requirements. The new Managing for Sustainability programming was established to respond to the growing demand for sustainability managers and professionals in the private sector, consultancies, government agencies, NGOs, and international organizations - managers that combine traditional business skills with environmental knowledge and an understanding of social systems and stakeholder expectations. To support in-course students and graduates from both programs, the team developed a new BCom Sustainability Careers Handbook and are currently working closely with Desautels' Career Centre to ensure students receive timely and effective advise as well as access to internship opportunities and work placements.
