This unit will provide students with a detailed understanding of emerging developments with respect to integrated reporting. The unit will provide a detailed coverage of the Integrated Reporting () framework and guidelines developed by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC). Unit coverage will enable students to understand how to orient internal processes to the six key capitals that are material to an organisation’s present and future value creation and how the development of an integrated internal and external reporting focus on value creation poses challenges and drives benefits for organisations. Students will examine and critique specific examples of organisations’ reports.
