MGGB 76A0. SUSTAINABLITILY MINDSET. (3 Credits)

This course is for individuals ready to take on the greatest set of career and life challenges any of us will face: the challenges created by changes in the world’s climate and in the ecosystem which supports life on this planet. We will develop ways to take advantage of opportunities created by these changes and to avoid some of the problems they are already creating for our lives and careers. To do so we will develop “sustainability mindset” based upon awareness, passion, and action. The course will be in workshop format and is designed to work equally well for individuals with deep knowledge of climate-change/global-unsustainability and for those without such knowledge-the only thing needed is a commitment to take a hold of your life and to make a difference in the world.

MGGB 769C. SPRTL&REL CONTRIB GLOBAL SUS. (3 Credits)

In the spirit of the “Stockdale Paradox” (Collins, 2001), this seminar is for folks who are willing ‘to confront the brutal facts” of climate change and global (un)sustainability and “yet (will) never lose faith” that we can still take meaningful actions to mitigate many of the tragic consequences of our parents’ and grandparents’ (and our professors’) failures to heed the warnings contained in such books as The Limits to Growth (1972). The seminar accepts that climate change and global (un)sustainability are very, very serious situations, are intertwined with many of the other pressing issues of the new millennium, and are calls to action for all of us. That is, the issues of financial and economic crisis in America and around the world, the enormous inequality of wealth in the world and in America, deforestation, desertification, ocean warming, melting glaciers, the progressive disappearance of species, the mutual tragedy of international terrorism, etc., are intertwined with the issues of climate change and global (un)sustainability and are yours and my problems to be dealt with today -- not merely someone else's problems to be solved for us in some distant future. The seminar is one of a series of seminars and courses devoted to developing tools and concepts for contributing to a more sustainable world and to taking actions to make such contributions. THEME: The seminar/workshop’s theme is that the global (un)sustainability situation can usefully be viewed as a “spiritual problem” and that spiritually (and religiously) based actions can be “part of the solution.” PURPOSE: The purpose of the seminar is to find out how such spiritually (and religiously) based actions can be taken and to help to bring them into being. CONTENT: The seminar will focus on (1) how the wisdom of the world’s great spiritual and religious traditions call for actions to reverse the tragic ways of being in the world that have taken our specious to the very precarious position we are now in (and that has already led to the recent extinction of many other species – the sixth great extinction – the first created by mankind), (2) what is currently being done by various spiritual and/or religions groups to create a more sustainable world, (3) what more could be done to leverage the ability of the world’s great spiritual and religious traditions to make even greater contributions, and (4) what the seminar members can do now to make these greater contributions happen.

MGGB 769N. INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT. (3 Credits)

The most important entity in international business today is the multinational corporation (MNC). Its strategies, structures, and processes are largely the context within which everything else in international business takes place. This course provides an in-depth and current understanding of the strategies, structures, and management processes that are associated with MNCs. International strategies and organizational designs are currently in a period of high transition. To a large extent, the dominant designs of the recent past are gone, and new dominant designs have not yet emerged. It would appear that there is currently a lot of experimentation going on in multinational corporations, both in terms of strategy and, even more, in terms of organizing to implement such strategy. No one knows when this period of transition might come to an end or what the dominant organizational forms will look like when this occurs. As a result of the above situation, the course seeks to provide students with the conceptual knowledge required to understand and critically evaluate what is going on in international firms today. It is not a time to blindly study best practices or the latest thing firms are attempting to do. The approach will be to first study and discuss the theoretical frameworks that exist and then attempt to apply these to international cases and current situations. The goal is to develop insight and capability that has lasting value, even in a field that continues to change rapidly. The course should be of value to anyone interested in managing or working within a multinational corporation. Prerequisite: MGGB 6613.
