SUMA 4100: Case Studies
Over the course of the semester, sustainability masters students wrote case studies about an organization (public, private for-profit, private non-profit) that analyzed its efforts to incorporate environmental sustainability into its organizational structure and practices. With this assignment, our students addressed the fundamental challenges facing managers in operationalizing sustainability strategies within routine decision-making processes inside organizations. These case studies identify best and worst practices for organizational management and make reasonable recommendations for integrating sustainability management into the organization. Additionally, the case studies addressed the applicability of these recommendations to other organizations.
