NBA 6380: Finance & Sustainability Colloquium was launched 10 years ago to provide students the opportunity to hear in-depth presentations and engage with leaders from the private, public, and non-profit sectors who are on the cutting edge of the finance-sustainability domain. As sustainability (the simultaneous consideration and management of economic, social, and environmental outcomes) has become a dominant theme in the business community over the past 30 years, the course offers students the chance to develop deeper understanding of its impact on the finance profession and the impact the profession is having on companies to address sustainability goals.

Sessions are held Tuesdays, 6-7:15p. The class is a 1 credit hour, S/U course. This term’s speakers include:
