Supply of and Demand for Environmentally Friendly MBA Courses Rising

A number of graduate programs, including Colorado, Cornell, George Washington and Yale are offering "sustainable growth" courses in their MBA program. Most of these emphasize businesses with little or no pollution impact or ways to reduce environmental damage in present businesses; some also address Third World economic development issues.

I anticipate that environmental accounting, if not already to this point, will be a major growth area within the discipline during the next 10 to 20 years and that larger schools should consider environmental accounting course offerings in either an MA (Acct) or as part of a 150 hour CPA preparation program (this also suggests that tenured financial accounting faculty may have a textbook publishing opportunity here).
