ACC 3590 - Assessing Sustainability in a Global Business Environment (3)


When Offered: On Demand
This course explores the process of measuring and reporting on the performance of business operations from three different sustainability perspectives: economic prosperity, environmental quality, and social justice. These three perspectives make up the conceptual “triple bottom line”, a generally accepted term for assessing sustainability performance, which indicates the ability of a company to be viable using available financial, natural, and social resources. A primary objective in this course is to develop an understanding of the concept of sustainability as it applies to businesses, and how global differences in economic conditions, cultures, codes of ethical conduct, environmental conditions, natural resources, human resource management, social issues, and other factors can impact sustainability performance assessment. This course will also incorporate an international perspective and will meet the “Global Issues” requirement for the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree.
Prerequisite: 54 earned hours
