a difference in the curriculum
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
