Over the years, the end of final exams has inspired any number of spontaneous displays of pure happiness, including high fives, chest bumping and uncontrollable giggling. But what was up with the 100 or so students boogying in the streets at the crossroads on lower campus on Tuesday, Dec. 3 – two days before finals kicked off?
“I left Wall Street in 2004 when I decided I had a black soul,” says Stephanie Berger (MBA'06), a McGill Desautels Faculty of Management MBA alumna who is now the senior manager for corporate responsibility and environment at Bell Canada. “I didn’t know much about sustainability back then, but I knew Wall Street wasn’t doing it right.”
The Sustainability Initiative houses the collaborative Interdisciplinary Network for Green Chemistry (IN4GC), which links scholars who share an interest in studying the broader business, economic, social, and political implications of green chemistry.

The Desautels Faculty of Management offers 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.
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.
Last Fall, the Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management (MDIIM) and the McGill Department of Chemistry in Montreal collaborated to offer MBA and Chemistry Students the opportunity to participate in a unique two-day event. The case competition created opportunities to build a network of potential collaborators in business and chemistry.
