FA. Prepares students to communicate accounting information, both within the accounting profession and to other stakeholders. Emphasizes developing a business style of writing that includes planning, critical thinking about accounting problems to be solved, organizing ideas, and producing documents or other products designed to accomplish the communicative and archival purposes pertinent to the business situation. Enables students to generate documents required in specialized areas of accounting such as auditing, taxation, and accounting information systems, and to consider the impact of electronic communication technology on communications and writing in the accounting profession. Familiarizes students with the use of authoritative accounting guidance (e.g., the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Accounting Standards Codification, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ Statements on Auditing Standards, and the Research Institute of America’s United States Tax Reporter) to research accounting issues, and enables students to organize, analyze and present information obtained to support assumptions made and conclusions reached. This is a required course in the MAcc program. Prerequisite: ACCT 315 and admission to the MAcc program.
