Sustainable Marketing

As environmental and social consciousness has grown in recent years, sustainability has emerged as an important market driver with the potential to grow profits and spur value creation. As a result, firms are increasingly making sustainability a strategic priority. This course considers sustainability through the lens of the marketing discipline. Through a combination of lectures, case studies, and class projects, this course examines the ways in which firms adapt their marketing strategies to meet business as well as societal needs.

Introduction to Organizational Behavior

MGT 3101 Organizational Behavior is a field that seeks to understand, explain and ultimately improve organizational behavior in organizations.

Organizational Behavior

Organizational behavior (OB) is an interdisciplinary field that seeks to understand human behavior within organizations.

In addition, this course covers important emerging HR trends, including how organizations manage sustainability initiatives and corporate social responsibility. 

Understanding Markets with Data Science

This course treats community as its central theme, and focuses on the use of data science to understand how individuals interact with each other, and how organizations and firms may gain insights and design policies that better serve individuals across various communities.  The class talks about community in general, but sometimes uses marketing examples to illustrate ideas.  The concepts and tools are applicable to any community, or any context where individuals are networked and interact with each other.
