Sustainability: Economics and Management, B.S.B.A.


Return to Williams College of Business Return to: Williams College of Business

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Sustainability: Economics and Management will be a 127 credit hour program, with a combination of classroom-based and experiential on-site learning, and key inter-disciplinary components, in the context of a Jesuit education.  Sustainability is typically defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs,” and economic sustainability involves the integration of economic and organizational goals with environmental and social goals.  This degree will allow student to holistically investigate the complex sustainability challenges of our era, where the economy and the organizations associated with it are seen as a component of the ecosystem, not vice versa.  Students will be encouraged to imagine and assist in creating new ways of thinking about sustainability in our economies and organizations.  Values-based and ethical issues will be regularly examined, including social justice questions related to distribution of economic products and resources, both within and across generations.
