New MBA course in sustainability
This semester the NC State MBA program offered its first course on sustainability issues in management as a one-credit-hour, weekend offering. This fall we will be offering a full three-credit-hour course MBA 590 taught by Professor Ted Baker. Professor Baker has a grant from the Center of Innovation Management Studies over the summer to do research on sustainability. He will be covering a wide range of issues, including consumer valuation and supply chain; there will be a special focus on opportunities to create new enterprises. There also will be a one-credit-hour lab course for those who want a hands on experience. The new sustainability course MBA 590 will count toward the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management concentrations. Details will soon be available on the NC State MBA webpage.
