ACCT 5640-001 Fraud Examination Course Syllabus Fall 2011 Dr. R. Cameron Cockrell, CPA Office: BLB 379C E-mail: Office Hours: Tues. 2-3:30, Thurs. 11-12:30, 3:00-6:30, and by appointment Purpose: This course is designed to enhance a student’s understanding of the emerging field of Fraud Examination. The course is structured to enhance the ability of students to think critically and to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to compete effectively in the rapidly changing world of information technology. Intended for those interested in new and emerging areas of accounting. Prerequisite: ACCT 4100 or 6 hours of BCIS above the 3000 level. Textbook : Wells, Principles of Fraud Examination , Wiley 3 rd Edition. ISBN: 978-0-470-64629-8. 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: . 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. Later in the syllabus, you will find a rubric for your participation grade. But more generally, as a principle, 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. 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 (i.e. making the tests easy) I might be able to adapt or explain something in a different way that helps you.

Do the Work – Presumably you bought the textbooks for some reason other than a feeling to give your money away (if not, see me after class ). One might go so far as to say you bought them to read. So make sure your investment pays off by reading them! As for homework, it is an integral part of the course. A recipe for ACCT 5640 success =
