A Cross-Disciplinary Pedagogical Approach to Environmental Management Education

This paper describes an innovative MBA course being taught at Rowan University that attempts to provide an interdisciplinary approach to environmental management education. The course, titled "MBA Special Topics: Environmental Issues in Business," provides students with the ability to consider issues concerning the natural environmental in terms of their scientific, philosophical, financial and legal implications. This article is intended to describe the nature and scope of the course, the manner in which it was created and administered, the methodology and results of course assessment, the role of the faculty and students who constitute the teaching and learning teams, and the limits and prospects of this type of pedagogical interaction as an emerging concept.
