You’ll have access to a range of international study opportunities.

This unit deals with organisational change and corporate strategy for sustainable outcomes: sustainability for business, for society and the continuation of life processes. The need to develop an integrated approach to ecological sustainability is explored, and opportunities and constraints on incremental and transformational change reviewed. Special consideration is given to the types of business principles that can be readily applied; reviewing outmoded business strategy approaches that ill-fit environmental and sustainability management; and exploring new possibilities for new challenges. In a graduate setting, this course reviews the new business challenges of the 21st century and looks at the role of Corporate strategy in achieving a more sustainable future. .

What you'll learn

  • a clear understanding and appreciation of the challenges facing organisational change in meeting sustainable development goals
  • an ability to critique corporate strategy approaches in the development of the business case for corporate sustainability
  • an ability to evaluate the role of both incremental and transformational business changes in the development of sustainability focussed corporate strategy
  • evaluate the performance of modern corporate strategy as a tool for achieving corporate sustainability
  • an ability to present and defend the value of corporate strategy in modern sustainability management

Advanced standing

At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
