AREA 5: GENERAL AND FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

2 Courses in Public, Private, or Nonprofit General or Financial Management (6 credits)       

 

The general management requirement teaches the skills that are essential to shaping the behavior of an organization and thus to carrying out effective sustainability initiatives. Students will graduate equipped with the tools to shape organizational culture and employee behavior even as new environmental challenges arise. The financial management requirement gives students a foundation in finance and financial models, and an understanding of how environmental commodities markets regulate polluting industries and provide incentives for encouraging desired behaviors. Students will also investigate the credibility of “non-financial metrics” that often accompany sustainability efforts.
