Finance can save the world
You know how important Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives are for a company and for the planet. It's not a question of "Should we?" anymore, but rather, "Can we afford it?"
Earning a Responsible Resource Management Certificate from one of the leading finance programs in the world helps you answer the hard questions for your company's responsibility and bottom line, along with a great boost to your resume.
You'll learn where to apply responsible resource management, how to evaluate and optimize resources, how to manage processes responsibly, and more—all within a framework of socially responsible management practices.
The four MBA-level courses in this certificate straddle both finance and accounting, including corporate financial reporting, strategic cost analysis, corporate social responsibility, and one elective you choose. Credits you earn can count toward the Iowa MBA.
