Making a difference in the curriculum

The Social EnterprisE at Kellogg (SEEK) program reflects the converging challenges managers face as they try to be socially responsible leaders. Kellogg created the program in 2005 to provide a rigorous, relevant experience for those interested in the intersection between management and society across all organizations and industries. SEEK boasts nearly two dozen courses designed to build Kellogg students' leadership skills to meet today's challenges, including these options.

Values-Based Leadership incorporates a variety of value perspectives into the decision-making process. Students learn to take disparate value propositions of various stakeholders and integrate them into a coherent vision.

Environmental Finance explores finance from a public policy viewpoint and examines the implications for financing corporations. Lectures address environmental regulation and the implications for business. The role of the corporation in the formation of environmental policy and negotiating environmental standards provide the basis for discussion.

Socially Responsible Business Practices examines its subject through the lens of the competitive advantages that these practices can provide. Topics are selected in consultation with students each year and have included diversity, employee concerns, international challenges, socially responsible investing and socially responsible entrepreneurship.

Leadership and Crisis Decision Making teaches students how to manage the challenges of nonmarket pressures in a rapidly changing competitive environment. Classes include a rich set of case studies as well as crisis simulations.
