At the core of every organization's Information Systems, are accounting applications which record, control, report, and augment decision making.

This course introduces or expands understanding of ERP software as it applies to Modern Accounting Information systems at an Enterprise level. Topics include: the SDLC, databases, fraud, internal controls (COSO and COBIT frameworks), analytics, reporting, and software project management. Students typically gain hands-on experience with leading ERP accounting software such as: SAP R/3, NetSuite, or Microsoft Dynamics in addition to exposure to Microsoft Visio and Microsoft Project. Students will draw from lecture, texts, case studies, and team projects. Course content is updated frequently to cover emerging topics and current events in this dynamic field.A special to note to S400 students:Welcome! A337 is a required course for accounting majors and therefore the class majority is typically accounting majors. The course content has proven valuable to IT majors, co-majors, Supply Chain majors and especially those students interested in consulting. S400 students historically have done very well in this course and found the material to be valuable. Please do not feel unwelcome even if the lectures seem aimed at the accounting audience.2.Course PrerequisitesI-Core3.Course ScheduleThe course schedule is available as a separate document, and can be found on Canvas.
