The primary goal is to further develop student ability to understand and apply audit planning, evidence and reporting procedures.*Computer SecurityUnderstanding and design of a comprehensive enterprise information security policy. Topics include design of a security policy, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, VPNs, encryption, and backup/disaster recovery.* Project ManagementIn this course, students learn project management skills & techniques. The focus will be on understanding project management lifecycles, practicing project management/consulting skills, tools and techniques, analyzing common project failure factors. This course will relate course content to a “real life” Accountancy and Information Systems orientation.* Information Management This course describes how an organization manages systems that provides the information it needs to remain competitive. Information management processes are organized around the COSO enterprise risk management framework. Students learn how organizations align information technology (IT) with business strategy, identify the risks that threaten system reliability, design control procedures to address those risks, and develop internal processes for monitoring and maintaining strategic alignment and control effectiveness.* Intelligent Decision Systems and Knowledge ManagementThe course will focus on deriving decisional value by using new orientations to data that are afforded by state-of-the-art Online Analytical Processing Systems (OLAP) and Data Warehousing technology. The emphasis would be on retrieval and dissemination of decision supporting data by applying Relational-OLAP, Multidimensional-OLAP, and Web based-OLAP to Enterprise wide data.

Students will also be given exposure to collaborative computing environments and experience its implications for managerial decision making.* Governmental AccountingState and local government accounting is the primary focus of this course, with some coverage of federal government accounting practices. First part of the course covers the conceptual differences between private and public sector accounting, such as budgetary accounting difference between financial flow of funds and economic flow of funds new requirements under Statement 34 will be considered within the context of the new financial statements and their reconciliation with fund accounts. The second part of the course will explore fund accounting and the uniqueness of each individual fund type (General Fund, Proprietary Funds, Capital Funds, and Fiduciary Funds). The third section of the course will look at the Yellow Book and other audit requirements for state and local governments. The course will end with a look at new and potential future standards of GASB such as OPEBs, and international governmental accounting standards.* Performance Measurement of Emerging Business ModelsThis course provides a framework that addresses issues related to performance measurement in organizations. Focus of discussions is on the significance of proper linkages and fitness among the organization’s strategic goals, its management control system (MCS) and the function of human resources management (HRM).A theoretical and conceptual framework on incentive/compensation, human resource management and management control will be offered during the first module of the class. The course will close with discussions on the system aspect and implications of designing an enterprise-wide integrated performance measurement (ERP).* Shareholder Value Creation & Financial Statement AnalysisThis course examines the role of financial statements and non-financial indicators in providing valuation information useful to managers and financial markets.

Areas covered include choice of entity, corporate formations, operations, distributions and liquidations, as well as corporate acquisitions and reorganizations* Taxes and Business StrategyThis course focuses on the importance of tax considerations in business decision-making and provides an appreciation of the pervasive role of taxes in these settings.

Through this integration, the course provides a framework for understanding how taxes affect business decision-making. This framework can serve as a basic toolkit to identify and evaluate tax planning opportunities. To illustrate the value of this framework, we will apply it to settings most value-added to both personal and business decisions, such as compensation, structuring the firm and raising capital, and mergers and acquisitions. The ultimate goal of the course is to provide a new approach to thinking about taxes (indeed, all forms of government intervention) that will be valuable even as laws and governments.* Research and Advanced AccountingThe course is designed to apply the technical knowledge of accounting theory and principles developed in other academic courses through the use of “real life” case studies, where such knowledge and professional judgment is applied in resolving advanced accounting problems and issues. This should result in developing analytical and research capabilities through case analysis and communication and interpersonal skills through written and oral presentations.* Special TopicsThis course covers topics that are not covered in depth in other courses but are important in your career. Some of the topics are technical in nature related to tax, accounting or information systems. Others address business (and life) skills that everyone needs, such as negotiation skills.
