Sustainable Development

This concentration is suite to those who appreciate that perhaps the greatest challenge in creating a sustainable culture is changing the patterns of behavior and practice of an organization's members and stakeholders. In 2009 Organizational Dynamics, in collaboration with other Penn departments, Dow, formerly Rohm & Haas Company, and other external partners, created a series of courses designed to help leaders implement sustainability initiatives in the modern organization.
