Sustainability and Information Systems invites students to proactively and innovatively reflect on sustainability issues and on their effect on organisational leadership and management, manifest in complex systems.
Sustainability here is viewed from multidimensional perspectives to encompass environmental, technological, social, and economic sustainability of contemporary organisations and their operations. To achieve sustainability objectives, engagement with a wide range of stakeholders, often mediated through the use of information technologies and collaborative media, is essential. This, however, often poses significant challenges to many organisations attempting to apply traditional, structured, and short-term approaches in their operations, as well as considerable opportunities for innovative, collaborative, technology-savvy, and long-term, focused organisations. Sustainability and Information Systems offers a learning environment which tackles just such possibilities.
