Sustainable Development

 

Centre of Excellence for Environmental Management has been actively identifying and introducing various courses linking environmental issues and sustainable development with business. Currently there are two courses being introduced: Environmental Management and Environmental Tools for Sustainable Business Management. These elective courses are being taught to the students of management at IMT from current semester. After attending these courses through lectures, case studies and projects, students will be able to integrate environmental dimensions into business management. This integration will enable them to take holistic decisions for managing sustainable business. The centre has also completed a research project funded under “Special projects on Canada” scheme of Shastri Indo Canadian Institute. This study aims to introduce sustainable development into business management education at IMT by collaborating with HEC Montreal, one of the top B-schools in North America. We are planning to introduce several relevant new courses in the near future. These courses will cover a wide range of topics related to general management to environmental marketing. This broad curriculum provides students with various options to bring in environmental dimensions into their work culture. With the Global warming threat affecting the world business scenario, most of the MNCs started recruiting people who are environmentally educated. We hope to set the stage for inculcating environmentally conscious professionalism into future managers of India.
