Students reflect on the social context of business

A Canadian Faculty of Management made a module on “The Social Context of Business” compulsory for all undergraduates studying Management. Students are asked to write a “conscious living” journal for 30 days where they take a hard look at how they conduct their lives and why they make the choices they do.

McGill UniversityAt McGill, we promote a change in management education in our course, “The Social Context of Business”. This is compulsory for all undergraduates studying Management at McGill and covers all the more difficult issues regarding business and society. These range from the employment contract to CEO compensation and the influence of marketing on societal norms to environmental degradation.

The course is based on dialogue rather than debate, so communication is a key. Students are asked to write a “conscious living” journal for 30 days where they take a hard look at how they conduct their lives and why they make the choices they do.
