About this book


This book is aimed at business schools around the globe. We offer rich case studies, teaching notes and assessment ideas to help business educators embed sustainability in curriculum. These international case studies are situated in Mauritius, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and India however they have global applicability. Each chapter is a joint creation with an industry or government partner and uses original research written in the form of a case study.

Active learning through case studies opens opportunities to change attitudes and to find creative solutions. In this book, we present ten chapters written as case studies covering a diverse number of sustainability topics – from tourism, health care, human resource management, climate change and supply chain management. Each case study is accompanied by detailed teaching notes and assessment questions as well as marking guides. There are also two chapters discussing sustainability discourse and discipline in higher education. The detailed cases can be immediately applied in the classroom.
