A primary purpose of this course is to provide learners with a strong understanding of the notion of "cost." Traditional accounting defines the construct in multiple ways (e.g., hard, soft or hidden costs) within an organizational framework. However, managerial accounting of sustainable business necessitates an understanding of additional dimensions such as environmental costs, and proper identification and measurement of such costs, and ultimately, their effective integration into relevant analytical and financial models. In addition, students will also reflect upon the strategies and processes supporting effective transition from traditional accounting principles to effective triple-bottom-line accounting. Building proficiencies with quantitative and modeling tools will also represent a critical course learning outcome. 4 crs.
