The AICPA is partnering with the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford to jointly offer a new executive management program in sustainability for accounting and finance professionals.
Expected to launch later this year, the online program of live classes is aimed at professionals in mid- to senior-level career roles, such as CFOs, board members and chief accounting officers. Graduates of the program will earn a certificate jointly signed by Oxford Saïd and AICPA.
“As we move closer to global sustainability standards, there is high demand for accounting and finance leaders who can successfully navigate this dramatic shift to greater organizational transparency beyond traditional financial metrics,” says Andrew Harding, CEO of management accounting at the AICPA. “Our new program will give key players in this transformation the skills they need to build trust with stakeholders and provide consistent, comparable information to develop strategies and shape decisions related to sustainability.”
