This course is suitable for Honors students from all disciplines interested in applying interdisciplinary, practical solutions to global problems. We will study practical approaches to the first nine (9) United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We will use Harvard Business Simulations to gain experiential learning.
Social problems impacting sustainable development are approaching critical levels not seen in the history of humanity, requiring the collaborative response of individuals, corporations, nonprofits, NGOs, and governments. I will actively challenge your pre-existing ideas to help you design varying solutions by bringing my rich depth of experience and practical approach with multinational corporations, international banking, geopolitical assessment, external country debt negotiations, strategic management and marketing, and philanthropy.
