Accounting and the Integrated Bottom Line

The course lays the groundwork for the sophisticated understanding of capital markets necessary to play a leadership role in driving sustainability. Students examine the relationship between financial statements and the value of the underlying business entity, discuss how to integrate sustainability advantages into accounting decisions, and develop a conceptual framework for how to make rational investment decisions.

After completing the course, students will be better able to:
  • Find, interpret and use financial information as managers and as investors
  • Understand income statements, cash flow statements and balance sheets
  • Analyze an investment decision using discounted cash flow analysis
  • Apply financial analysis to support managerial decision-making
  • Integrate the competitive advantages of sustainability into an accounting framework
