Global Warming and International Business Management
Global warming may be the most important challenge that the human race has faced to date; a broader public is finally coming to grips with the ramifications of the potentially disastrous changes wrought by such contributing factors as fossil fuel consumption, deforestation, rapid population growth, and pollution. The economic consequences of these changes, however, have not been well explored. Twenty-first century managers in nearly all fields will need to develop a profound understanding of the results of environmental policies, energy use, and lifestyle choices on this universal issue; those who work in environment-related fields will need in particular to come to grips with these concerns and our local, national, and international responses to them.CONRES 688L and MBAMGT 688L are the same course.
