ACCT 5120 Information Systems in Accounting Course Syllabus Fall 2010 Dr. R. Cameron Cockrell, CPA Office: 217E E-mail: Cameron.Cockrell@unt.edu Office Hours: Tues. 11-12:30, Weds. 1:00-2:00, Thurs. 11-12:30, 3:00-6:30 Purpose: This course is designed to enhance a student’s understanding of the role of accounting information systems in a business. Further, students will develop skills in evaluating and selecting computer systems for all accounting disciplines. Ultimately, students will understand how accounting information systems facilitate the accomplishment of strategic and operations objectives within the firm organization. Textbooks : Bradford, Modern ERP – Select, Implement & Use Today’s Advanced Business Systems, Friedman, The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century. 978- 0312425074 (Note: You do not have to purchase this book, but you are required to read the first 4 chapters for class) Values: The following is a list of values that I expect in and out of the classroom. These are meant as guidelines, not as an exhaustive list of suggested behavior: Academic Honesty – I absolutely will not tolerate cheating. I demand myself to be as fair as possible. Part of that fairness is creating a level playing field. If somebody cheats, they gain an unfair edge relative to other students in this course, and that simply will not be tolerated. In the past, I have dealt specifically with students cheating on tests, and if forced to do so, will deal with it again. You may find the official UNT Academic Integrity Policy at the following URL: http://vpaa.unt.edu/academic-integrity.htm . Respect – I will treat each student with respect, and expect all students to treat myself, and their peers with respect. This is not meant to stifle disagreement. We will promote discussion in the classroom, and alternative points of view are allowable for discussion, but keep disagreement to the issues – do not get personal . Contribute – This is a requirement of the course. Your participation makes all the difference between a dry, lecture-focused course, and an active and fun-learning environment. Your education will be so much richer if you and your classmates actively participate in the course. I have learned in my academic and professional career that you really do learn more when you contribute. Much of this course centers on active learning, and your contributions directly increase the value of this course.

Open Communication with me – If my teaching style, the course material, or some other facet of the course has you feeling down, tell me . I cannot fix what I do not know is broken. While I cannot take certain measures (e.g. making the tests easy) I might be able to adapt or explain something in a different way that helps you. Do the Work
