Richard Miller, Bell, Fodness, Whittington"Sustainability through stakeholder value creation"

In the Authors' Words
The University of Dallas’ Satish and Yasmin Gupta College of Business (SYGCOB) has been at the forefront of defining sustainability education over the past decade. In part, this leadership has been due to its inclusive, holistic nature with regards to sustainability education in the MBA program. The faculty believe that the best approach to teaching sustainability is best achieved across the curriculum to expose the students to multiple perspectives. In order to provide a cohesive element across the program, a stakeholder value creation perspective was incorporated into the classes to provide a consistent framework. With this perspective as the starting point, four classes in particular, Business and Society, Value-Based Marketing, Managing Complex Organizations, and Sustainable Supply Chain Management are used to describe how this approach readies students to meet the SYGCOB’s mission of preparing principle and moral leaders.

In sum, the book chapter provides an overview of how each class uses its unique perspective of delivering stakeholder value with respect to the topic of sustainability. The chapter also builds upon the SYGCOB’s commitment to experiential learning in all classes by including several exercises for each class.

 The chapter also discusses how the holistic and stakeholder value creation perspective extends to the SYGCOB’s Sustainable Business Network’s events. The events bring together a variety of corporations and individuals from across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex to discuss a wide spectrum of topics that pertain sustainability. During the three years of the network’s existence, over 1000 people have joined in the conversation about sustainability from many differing perspectives.
