Leadership, Ethics and Organizational Sustainability
Saint Joseph's University introduced the leadership, ethics and organizational sustainability (LEO) major to encourage undergraduate students to re-examine business practices in light of social, environmental, political and economic shifts.
In this program, you'll be encouraged to develop leaders whose goal is to lead and work for the greater good. This includes several areas, including leadership, social responsibility, ethics and justice.
The LEO program defines leading for the greater good through the widely accepted sustainability principle of the triple bottom line of people, planet, profit. This encompasses the need for developing shared value that generates fair profit, provides for human well-being and consciously stewards natural resources. Additionally, as a student in the program you’ll focus on understanding lifestyles that minimize pollution, organizations that are socially responsible, societies that recognize the importance of fairness and principled individuals who behave in an ethical manner.
