Quarter: Fall 2019
Grade: A
Jan. 6, 2021

I have never liked business, but I was interested in learning how to make companies and consumers more environmentally friendly and focused, and this class did just that. I found all the material super interesting, and Magali was a GREAT professor for this. She was super insightful into the field and made the 8 am classes fun and enjoyable. We even got to run some game simulations that turned into competitions to help reinforce the subject matter. The class has no exams and is very group-project focused with it all culminating in a sustainability report and evaluation for a company of your group's choice. I really enjoyed this project and felt as though I learned some great career-oriented skills in the process. I highly recommend taking this class!

Professor Delmas has a great background in the subject area and I felt like this class was a great complement to other classes I have taken in the department that focused more on policy/environmental justice/science. The focus was on business and how different companies can be incentivized to implement green practices/how to make being sustainable also profitable which was interesting. There are no tests, just individual assignments and group assignments. Having a good group is essential- almost a little frustrating that so much of the grade was based on group work throughout the quarter. Some of the assignments seemed sort of irrelevant but overall I felt as though the case studies and the lectures were decently interesting and engaging. Attendance was required, which was tough for an 8 am at times but overall the class was worth it and pretty easy to do well without much work or stress.

Dec. 19, 2019

Professor Delmas is great! Like other people said, she has a thorough understanding of corporate sustainability since she's a professor from both the Anderson school and IOES. Her lectures may not be the most engaging every time, but the material overall is very interesting. There aren't any quizzes or exams, so your grade is just participation and assignments (which consist of individual, group, and a final group project). Overall, I really enjoyed this class, and it was cool to have Impossible Foods reach out to Magali for us to do research on their company. I would definitely recommend as it isn't difficult to get a good grade for the amount of work you put into it

Quarter: Fall 2019
Grade: A
Dec. 18, 2019

Interesting class about the intersection of business and the environment. Talk a lot about how companies obtain value through sustainability. Go through several case studies that the professor actively works to keep updated and relevant. Overall interesting material.

There are no exams (no quizzes, no midterm, no final) in this class which made it hard for me to focus on the material in class. You can complete the assignments if you have some background in corporate sustainability as they really only ask for your informed opinion.

There is actually a lot of work for this class especially in the first half. There are 4 individual assignments, 5 group projects, and 1 final group project. You form groups for the entire quarter on the first day of class, so it's a good idea to take this class with 4 or 5 other RELIABLE people. I low key had an awful group and carried them through the entire quarter which made this class very unenjoyable. Class should be very easy if you have a group that is not composed of people who have sub human levels of intelligence.

Great professor, super TA, and good material.

Perfect class for people who are genuinely interested in the topic. The class if formatted a little differently than others in the sense that its largely a group project and there are a wide range of assignments all detailed in the syllabus. Easy workload though and every assignment has a purpose and is relative to your understanding of the material. Smaller class so it felt like a seminar and she is very knowledgeable about the subject, ask her anything and she'll have a great answer!

Delmas's background with both the Institute of the Environment and the Anderson School of Business lends her a unique view on business/sustainability issues.

ENV 163 was FAR more work than I expected. Some weeks we would have an individual assignment, a group assignment, and a presentation all in one week.

My biggest suggestion? Don't assume this class will be super easy if you want an A, and take it with a few people that you know and trust. A reliable group is going to be your BIGGEST asset.
