MBA Curriculum Reform in the Accounting Discipline

Accounting Measurement for Leaders

Author: Cote, Jane
Product Type: Syllabi; Teaching Modules
Source: The Aspen Institute Center for Business Education's Corporate Governance and Accountability Project
Publication Year: 2008

Faculty Rating: 4.4 stars4.4 stars4.4 stars4.4 stars4.4 stars [5 Faculty Ratings] 5288 views

Accounting with its arcane language and rules is a subject often feared and reviled by MBA students. While the process of producing accounting information might indeed contribute to this reputation, framed differently, MBA students easily see the role accounting plays in achieving strategic goals and managing stakeholder tensions. MBA students are expected to be future business leaders, not accountants. Using this assumption to design the course results in less emphasis on computation and more emphasis on the consequences that choices made in the process of accounting measurement have on strategic direction, stakeholder commitments and performance expectations. Students then understand that accounting is a measurement system that lays the foundation for enlightened decision making.

There are three main objectives for this course. The first objective is to provide you (the student) the opportunity to discuss, with your peers, one of life’s most important questions: What are the determinants of a meaningful and fulfilling life? The second objective is to provide you with the set of skill-set and the confidence to devise your own roadmap for leading a meaningful and fulfilling life. The third objective is to transform your personality into one who, by and large (and certainly in life’s most important decisions), operates out of love for what you want to do, rather than out of fear for what you have to do.

Connecting a Victorian Literature class with a senior-level accounting course seems so mysterious that it might well have been concocted by Charles Dickens for one of his novels. As with most mysteries, questions abound. What are we as the teachers of these two classes trying to achieve? How did we manage to construct two such different courses in tandem? What possessed second semester seniors in a highly regarded business school to enroll in an elective class focusing on the study of lengthy novels written 150 years ago?

In “Literature, Ethics, and Authority,” we use story to address perennial questions: what do we do when people, events, or issues test our ideas of leadership, career, and proper behavior? How do we respond to concerns over diversity, gender, and family in the workplace, or cope with the reality of war, death, and ordinary human frailty? Through films, novels, plays, and short fiction—good stories—this seminar examines issues of freedom and control, group norms and individual expression, as they bear on our ambition to manage both work and personal life.

Two major trends – globalizations and responsibility in business – have shaped recent developments in international business – and the way organizations and their leaders approach the challenges facing contemporary corporations. The first trend, globalization, is all pervasive. The second trend is more recent, but equally pervasive, and concerns the quest for responsibility in business. In this course, we will address both the "knowing‟ and the "doing‟ side of CSR and help you build a solid knowledge base and some fundamental skills (e.g., ethical reflection and stakeholder engagement). This knowledge will help you develop a well-informed approach to the wider social and ethical issues you will face in an international business career.

Sustainable development in emerging economies is of worldwide concern to many different stakeholders due to the global impacts that billions of people will collectively have and are having on climate change, energy supplies, natural resources (renewable and nonrenewable), employment conditions, working standards, and other critical issues. However, given the lack of a global governance framework for multinational corporations (MNCs), international organizations are important to ensure that MNCs operate in a sustainable way. International organizations can provide policy and partnering solutions that promote multiple actors’ interests. They can also act as arbiters and standards setting bodies.
