As part of Aspen CBEs “Corporate Governance and Accountability” project, which was funded by the Sloan Foundation, Aspen CBE in 2008 collaborated with Jane Cote and John Becker-Blease—at the time, both faculty at the College of Business at Washington State University-Vancouver (WSUV)—to produce two extended teaching modules that focus on integrating the stakeholder perspective into MBA-level courses in the Accounting discipline and the Finance discipline.
Each of these teaching modules includes a syllabus with content organized into teaching units and offers suggested readings to accompany each unit. The modules also include extensive notes on the readings, and ideas that can be used in framing the content in class. Both syllabi can be taught “as-is”—indeed Professors Cote and Becker-Blease have both taught these classes multiple times. Alternatively, individual units may be incorporated into other existing courses.
As part of an Aspen Center for Business Education mini-series on “The Stakeholder Approach in the Core Disciplines,” this paper explores these two professors’ experiences designing the teaching modules and teaching the courses on which they are based. We hope that their work and the ideas they raise will offer useful, concrete examples and provocative food for thought to business faculty in Accounting, Finance and beyond.
