Connection to Research and Practice

In “The Sustainable Enterprise - Social and Ecological Perspectives” we will be exploring and applying the latest scientific literature on some of the greatest challenges facing business, both large and small. Students will become aware of the connection between scientific research and business operations and management practices by studying the that linear economic activities, that is, those which are based on “take-make-consume-waste”, is now an unsustainable way to pursue economic growth. The linear economy of targeting ongoing economic growth has reached its “use by date”. Managers need to take up practices supportive of a circular economy of Reducing waste, Repairing products, Remanufacturing, Recycle up, Restoring nature and Reimagining the future of products and services. Sustainability is a major topic of research at JIBS being a key research domain for both MMTC and CeFEO research centers.
