Green Business Feasibility Assessment

This course provides hands-on experience conducting a rigorous feasibility assessment for a new triple-bottom-line business. Applying a well-established methodology, students will research and write a detailed feasibility assessment covering several factors, among them: the venture type, industry context, resource needs, target market(s), potential benefits (including social and environmental), key risks, and financial review. In their written report and oral presentation, students will also make an overall recommendation to implement, postpone, or not implement the new business.

The Spring 2016 course focuses on water solutions. In particular, students will analyze the potential for an innovative, California-based business model to help alleviate water challenges in Australia, France, Germany, Japan, and United Kingdom. Regardless of the theme, country, or final recommendation, all students will gain a practical, career-enhancing skill and with a strong writing sample to back it up.
