BerkeleyHaas Case Series
The Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University's Sustainable Development Goals case series derives from their initiative to embed SDGs in their curriculum. The cases explore the complexity of sustainable development and compel students to rise above the content of their own specialisation, and to view sustainable development as an integrated concept linking environmental, social and economic dimensions.
