Accounting is an information system that supports business processes and decision-making. This course covers business processes and transaction cycles, related internal controls, and the use of computers as tools for the collection, organization, analysis, and reporting of accounting data. Given that this course may be a student's sole exposure to accounting information systems in the undergraduate program, it will include practical use of Microsoft Excel, Peachtree Accounting, and Microsoft Access. Students will also learn current modeling practices used in database design.

ACC now requires BUS 340 for all ACC students (effective SP17), and so students will enter ACC 340 with additional computer/database skills.  That allows ACC 340 add BUS 340 as a prerequisite, and to focus on advanced content - hence the revisions to the course.
