There are three main objectives for this course. The first objective is to provide you (the student) the opportunity to discuss, with your peers, one of life’s most important questions: What are the determinants of a meaningful and fulfilling life? The second objective is to provide you with the set of skill-set and the confidence to devise your own roadmap for leading a meaningful and fulfilling life. The third objective is to transform your personality into one who, by and large (and certainly in life’s most important decisions), operates out of love for what you want to do, rather than out of fear for what you have to do.

Two major trends – globalizations and responsibility in business – have shaped recent developments in international business – and the way organizations and their leaders approach the challenges facing contemporary corporations.

In this course, we will address both the "knowing‟ and the "doing‟ side of CSR and help you build a solid knowledge base and some fundamental skills (e.g., ethical reflection and stakeholder engagement). This knowledge will help you develop a well-informed approach to the wider social and ethical issues you will face in an international business career.

Connecting a Victorian Literature class with a senior-level accounting course seems so mysterious that it might well have been concocted by Charles Dickens for one of his novels.

Sustainable development in emerging economies is of worldwide concern to many different stakeholders due to the global impacts that billions of people will collectively have and are having on climate change, energy supplies, natural resources (renewable and nonrenewable), employment conditions, working standards, and other critical issues. However, given the lack of a global governance framework for multinational corporations (MNCs), international organizations are important to ensure that MNCs operate in a sustainable way. International organizations can provide policy and partnering solutions that promote multiple actors’ interests. They can also act as arbiters and standards setting bodies.
