Understand the spiritual dimensions of ethical enterprise
The business world is in crisis. Twentieth-century management techniques are no longer viable. Society has recognised the consequences of personal and corporate greed and their detrimental impact on our environment and the quality of life.
Many progressive business schools and corporations have created training programmes that advocate sustainability and socially-responsible enterprise. Yet they often address the issues superficially, sidestepping more profound topics such as personal ethics and spiritual integrity. A new paradigm is clearly needed. Some thinkers have turned East, using traditional Vedic and Indic concepts to cope with stress and promote self-mastery and productivity. One new trend, called karma capitalism, has trained executives from DuPont, Sprint Nextel, and General Electric through courses such as The Bhagavad Gita on Effective Leadership.
The School of Business Management stands at the forefront of this new trend. It aims to show how ethical approaches to enterprise do not constrain profit and productivity, but enhance them. The college’s ethical approaches provide tools for sustainable prosperity.
First online business classes we are planning to deliver starting from September 2013.
