In order to effectively use and design AIS, accountants must gain a sound understanding of how AIS work. Accountants must effectively measure the cost-effectiveness of AIS, assess the reliability of the information produced, as well as engage in the redesign and implementation of new and better systems. Information technology (IT) affects business processes and controls. While IT brings new capabilities, it also creates new threats and affects the level of risk. Accountants must gain a solid understanding of these issues in order to determine how to modify AIS in order address these threats and assess the adequacy of controls in an AIS. Accounting students will learn how the design and functioning of AIS can be improved to add true value to an organization. Accountants must also be proficient in the use of technology for providing information and therefore students will effectively utilize Excel and Access in order to provide information for decision-making. In this course we will supplement lectures with active learning and group work in order master skills and acquire knowledge. Evaluation for this course will consist of 3 exams, weekly quizzes, class participation and discussion, computer application assignments, projects, as well as a final group case analysis and presentation.
