People, profits and planet: Sustainable business strikes a balance among these three factors. Sustainability is becoming a national phenomenon, and companies are taking notice, from the smallest startups to the largest multinational banks.
It becomes less possible with each passing year to ignore sustainability and still succeed in business. Customers are demanding it. The planet demands it. Business themselves are demanding it. To educate students to operate in a business world where sustainability is gaining ground, Fordham introduced an interdisciplinary curriculum in sustainable business: a collaboration between the Gabelli School of Business and Fordham College.
Students may even choose to complete a minor in this field.
The sustainable business program aligns seamlessly with Fordham's mission to "promote research and education that assist in the alleviation of poverty, the promotion of justice, the protection of human rights and respect for the environment." It's part of what makes Fordham different from other business schools.
And by pursuing sustainable business coursework, or a full minor, Fordham students can differentiate themselves in the eyes of prospective employers and the broader business community.
