Presidio Graduate School’s Capital Markets course’s primary purpose is to explore, understand and appreciate the institutions, flow of money, functions, laws and language of the capital markets, so that students are able to relate the concepts of sustainability to the capital markets. The class learns how the capital markets can be accessed and used to achieve sustainability goals, and how the capital markets can impact work used to pursue sustainability goals, even if there is no intention to be directly involved in the capital markets.
For one of the course assignments, students write a letter to an oversight body, government entity or other appropriate institution. This letter enables students to leverage the recommendations developed in their course project and are directed towards changing the sector of capital markets that relates to their chosen topic so it reinforces principles of sustainability.
This page is a showcase of all the class letters over the course of the assignment.
