BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
Sustainable business leaders must be self-reflective, comfortable with uncertainty, open, flexible, and adaptable. As champions for business models and practices that promote social equity and respect planetary boundaries, sustainable business leaders must understand how worldviews shape the actions of business, government, and citizens. In this course, students examine social systems and reflect on the foundational values and skills necessary to navigate these systems and advocate for change.
