21895 Business and Social Impact

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



Do you want to help build a better world and make a difference? This question is now on the cutting edge of industry best practice. Businesses are increasingly being called upon to account for their impact on the environment and society, beyond their profit-margins and share price. Students learn about approaches to tackle some deep problems facing society, including climate change, wealth inequality, racism, sexism and gender discrimination. The subject reflects growing calls from employers, government, corporate shareholders and the public to equip future leaders with skills to address real-world challenges from multiple perspectives including accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, Indigenous and global perspectives. Unlike other subjects in this area, however, the emphasis is not just on businesses impacting on society, but the converse too: leaders listening, learning and collaborating with community stakeholders to build a sustainable and fairer world.
