ORG 7075 - Designing Sustainable Global Economic and Organizational Systems


This interdisciplinary course critically examines the current global economic order in light of a range of economic theories, including the human development and capabilities approach (economics as development), social economics, behavioral economics, etc. A central focus of the course is to envision how professionals from all sectors can collaboratively contribute meaningfully and significantly to the emergence of a sustainable and livable future for all.  This course provides students an interdisciplinary learning experience that guides them in understanding and analyzing current mainstream and alternative economic models, to envision new ones rooted in the human development and capabilities approach, sustainability principles, and social justice, to devise ways to practically implement them in organizations, and to design ways to facilitate economic change in the wider global arena. 3 credit(s)
