It is now widely recognised that sustainability and corporate social responsibility have become mission critical to all organizations. This requires that organizations address the ‘three pillars’ or ‘triple bottom line’ of sustainability, and seek to reconcile environmental, social, and economic demands. In order to achieve ‘sustainable development’ (i.e. ‘… development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’), sustainability will become embedded in the core strategies and operations of organizations globally. This major sequence aims to equip future leaders with the knowledge, mindset and skills for them to be able to manage sustainability, in accordance with the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Management Education. In doing so it focuses on developing an understanding of the globalised context of contemporary management, and approaches this from a cross-disciplinary perspective by drawing on philosophy, economics, and management theory.
