MDIIM

Outreach

Our past events have attracted positive media interest and were successful in promoting the MDIIM and the Desautels Faculty of Management

Teaching

In Fall 2014, the Desautels Faculty of Management will offer a Bachelor of Commerce with a Major in Managing for Sustainability. Managing for Sustainability (39 credits) is designed for students who wish to combine managerial and business knowledge with a solid understanding of the interlinked economic, social and ecological challenges of achieving sustainability. It integrates management studies with fundamentals of environmental science and sustainability, and is offered in collaboration with the McGill School of Environment and the Department of Geography.

The Sustainability Initiative

Sustainability is a societal ideal and criterion for development which resembles other widely accepted but conceptually challenging human goals, such as justice and freedom. Because scientific understandings of how nature functions change over time, and because value judgments are involved, it is impossible to define precise conditions for sustainability once and for all.

ACS-GCI Director on the MDIIM Sustainable Innovation Workshop

Wed, 2013-10-23 13:38

The past six weeks have been eventful. In early September there was the ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis and that was an enjoyable week.  Indianapolis turned out to be a great venue with lots of good programming and some very memorable events. I especially enjoyed the Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture by Dr. Marin Burke entitled “Making molecular prosthetics with a small molecule synthesizer,” and the address by Alan Alda.

MBA Diary: Do Good Or Do Well?

Sat, 2013-10-05 11:24

Scott Weatherhead, an MBA student at McGill University in Canada and the Social Economy Initiative's impact intern, travels through North Korea and South Africa in search of a use for his theoretical knowledge.
MBA students are preoccupied with doing well. We pull all-nighters for the highest marks, to land the best internships, to get the biggest salary upon graduation. Rarely do we take enough time to assess the impact of our actions. Yes, working harder may raise our marks but, beyond that, what is it all for?
