The importance of ethical behavior in the accounting profession is needed to avoid scandal, inappropriate behavior, and the loss of confidence by the public in the work product of the profession. This course covers the elements necessary to make proper ethical decisions. First, ethics are defined and then followed by the questions that need to be asked in everyday business practices. Key ethical standards specific to the accounting profession are explored. These standards highlight the unique role of the accountant both as “trusted advisor” as well as the “reporter” of financial information to the marketplace and governmental agencies. Instruction includes writing assignments, classroom lecture, and case study presentations.
