Course content

Sustainable finance is at the forefront of global discussion. Government bodies, professional organisations and industry members are all trying to answer the same questions: what is sustainable finance, and how do we engage in it to support broader green agendas?

The reality is that sustainable finance is not simply one concept. It encompasses everything from carbon accounting and green investment through to environment, social and governance reporting (ESG). Investment in projects with ESG practices is on the rise, as is demand for finance professionals with expertise in this niche yet rapidly growing field.

On this course you’ll look at future concepts such as environmental economics and how to make your capital structure more sustainable. You’ll work with leading academics to explore how these concepts sit alongside traditional approaches to accounting and finance. You’ll also engage with broader concepts of sustainability, strategy and leadership so that’ll you’ll be able to integrate the learnings from this course across your career progression.
