This is an extremely detailed and informative course, ideal for someone looking to expand their knowledge of sustainability issues and the strategy required to address them in a corporate context.
I enjoyed this course, it was very detailed in explaining what exactly Sustainability means and how it partners with a successful business. Great course and good information!

A well put-together course in which I felt a lot was learnt. Having a range of tutors run the 'lessons' was very useful in avoiding the course feeling repetitive and also beneficial in getting different views and opinions on how best to tackle the issue of corporate sustainability. Bringing in company founders was especially interesting, as well as some of the readings from well-known professors.
My only piece of constructive criticism would be that some of the videos weren't as easy to understand and or follow. The voice-text function worked well though and helped to limit this slight problem.

I really liked the course. Specific:
- The number of participants, with different points of view.
- Real examples, 100% counted by the protagonists.
- The approach of the final work.
I would suggest, to improve as much as possible:
- A greater focus on the Business Case - would greatly help participants build Business Case in their work environments/companies. If companies with good sustainable performance are profitable, won't there be more tools to make a powerful approach?

I really enjoyed the course as an introduction to Corporate Sustainability. The course gives a good overview of the whys towards a transition to sustainability and how to prepare for one. I think a deeper emphasis on the concrete actions to be taken while pursuing a transition towards sustainability would be useful as a add-on to the course.

I enjoyed the course very much, although some of the concepts are repeated too extensively and, sometimes, the lessons may sound redundant. Overall, I really appreciated the different points of view proposed by the diverse teachers and their practical examples. Thank you Bocconi for this complete course.

Very informational course! A lot of useful and trustworthy websites were provided. All of the articles and books were very interesting and engaging. It would be helpful to see some course managers' responses to the final work though. Thank you very much for the course! It was a pleasure!

It's a very structured course, interesting, engaging and comprehensive. I've had some difficulties following some lectures because of the limited ability of the lecturer to deliver his/her content in front of a camera...but I could read the transcript anyway...

The course covered a very wide range of topics on CSR from accounting to discrimination, closed-loop economies. It was very interesting but there was a lot more work to provide than is first stated. Some lectures were a lot more interesting than others too

My First course on Coursera. It is well organized and the content is very understandable and interesting.
If you have just a little interest in sustainability I suggest you try this course. You'll find it a good starting point in understanding the topic!

The course is very interesting and overall well structured. Some lectures could be improved, but definitely worth the effort for everybody interested in sustainability and sustainable business.

I recommend this course to all those who are interested in the topic of sustainability and corporate management. It will be great to have more practical examples and case studies.
By Alessandro L S•
Very interesting general course, but I expected more concrete example and especially tools and specific techniques in order to assess and implement sustainability in companies.

The content and insights of the course are really good and relevant in the context of Corporate Sustainability, but some videos are too long which ended up demotivating me
By Bert D•
Interesting material, dense but instructive and very well illustrated with practical case studies. Week 5 I found a bit too abstract. All in all - a course worth taking !

Content fo the course is really good and diverse almost all the lectures are equally important. Concepts are clear and precise.
Just a few videos that not recorded well.
By Tania M B•
It is a very interesting course for a first approach to sustainability and how to change a business towards a sustainable enterprise. I recommend it !!

I love the course and learnt a lot! I just wished some of the concepts had been explained in greater detail or through some reeading materials.
By Alessandro B•
Really good course, I would like to follow a course more focused on practical ways to change business operations through sustainability.

Nice course to learn the basis of corporate sustainability. Sometimes the questions at the end of each week are not well formulated.
By Idris A•
The course is very detailed and address modern issues however some courses are not necessary and should be kept as optional
By Pauline G•
Very interesting course. A shame many of the papers in the readings are not provided as PDFs or through some other means.

Course was good nd well explained, but I wished there were far more examples of companies turning sustainable.
