Sustainability and Global Value Chains
Form of learning:
The course offers an overview of theoretical perspectives and topics at the international business-society interface. The themes range from global value chains and international sourcing, and underlying environmental and social/human rights questions, to MNEs’ sustainability transformations and shared value creation. The course is highly interactive. Cases are drawn from a variety of industries and geographical contexts. Through a series of participatory lectures and group works, students will be invited to deepen their understanding of sustainable global business and reflect their professional interests and aspirations. Several classes will feature a guest.
