Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
In this course, we will teach Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) concepts that will be useful to tax professionals to better understand the client's information environment and gauge how best to access needed client tax information. Students will learn about ERP systems and obtain hands-on experience with the financial accounting, asset accounting (AA), and plant maintenance (PM)1 courses in the SAP ERP system. ERP concepts will be reinforced with tax-focused examples and assignments including revisiting tax deduction material, as well as learning more about the Tangible Property and Repair Regulations. Credit will not be allowed for this course and for MBA 515. An undergraduate degree and basic tax and accounting knowledge required.

The accounting profession is increasingly requiring its new staff to be up to date on the latest technology.  This is especially true for accounting tax professionals.  This course will provide students a combination of innovative technology skills and comprehensive tax knowledge.

mlnosbis 4/19/2017:
1) The learning outcomes should be labeled as outcomes, not objectives, in the syllabus to prevent confusion. Objectives are the larger goals for the course, not the measurable outcomes.
2) Assignment breakdown should be listed the same way on the CIM form, instead of 1 assignment for 100% of the grade.
3) Length of course is shown as 6 weeks. The length is 8 weeks for the shorter, not the regular academic, courses. https://studentservices.ncsu.edu/calendars/academic/#fall

pjharrie - 06/29/2017 - in the syllabus, there are some issues with the Course Schedule - the initial statement claims that are six topics, but seven follow. How often can students resubmit work for regrading?

mlnosbis 7/27/2017: The evaluation methods should use the same weight or point value on both the syllabus and CIM form. The syllabus lists point values, while the CIM form lists percentages. Choose one method and use that in both places. Everything else has been addressed.

ABGS Reviewer Comments:
-The courses are closely related but I like the way they divided them up into 8 week modules, instead of one 4-credit course which could have been overwhelming for the students and the instructor.
