Proposal ID: 101993
Type: Change Course
Submission Date: November 29, 2017 4:03pm
Effective Term: Spring 2018
There are two changes to this course: the first is to change the credits from 4 to 3. This change is to bring the credit hours in line with the standard credits for a graduate class in the College of Business. The other change is to make this a Bacc Core course. Doing so has not actually required changes to the course content; the course learning objectives and outcomes already served the Bacc Core outcomes. With regard to the general justification for the course, it is notable that within the College of Business there are currently no other courses directly addressing sustainable business; this course thus meets a need and a key aspect of the OSU current strategic plan signature area of promoting economic growth and social progress. There are also very few Bacc Core courses offered in business, and only one other business course addressing contemporary global issues. This course provides a key skill for students entering business, today, which increasingly must address sustainability issues, for economic, social, ethical and political reasons.
