Event description

Description

At Hult, you'll learn through experience. That’s why we bring our Experience Hult events to cities around the world–so you can get a feel for what it’s like to be a Hult student without leaving your home country.

Network with alumni and fellow candidates and take a master class with an internationally renowned professor to really understand our practical approach to learning. These events are the next best thing to a campus visit–we really hope you can join us to get to know Hult better.

We're brining our Professor to Moscow to lead an interactive master class. What better way to decide if Hult is the right fit for you than to experience one of our classes?

About the class: Disruptive Innovation for a Sustainable Future

For over 40 years, American society has mostly accepted Milton Freedman’s motto that the primary social responsibility of business is to pursue profits. The problem with this one-sided-view is that many times people with little voice, limited means, or no representation pay the hidden costs of production. Society at large pays in the form of environmental damage and resource scarcity. Laws and regulations lay down the guideposts for society’s expectations, but firms have a lot of leeway in determining the right course of action. For decades, they mostly chose profits over people.

This quandary fueled a prolonged philosophical debate regarding the questions: ‘To whom is the firm responsible’ and ‘What are the boundaries of this responsibility?’

This session will discuss how profit-motivates businesses, who partially created some of society's great challenges, are now leveraging technology and innovation to embrace their responsibility to society.
