Accounting Information Systems
ACC 073 – Accounting Information Systems – Fall 2018
Course Description: Using SAP, an enterprise resource planning system (ERP) adopted by the majority of Fortune 1000 companies, students will gain valuable and practical skills in Accounting Information Systems (AIS). AIS are an integral part of every business and organization, as they are impacted virtually by every transaction that occurs within an entity. The data gathered and stored within the accounting information system are essential to the proper control and evaluation of the organization.
The course covers common business processes, ERP transaction processing, relational databases, and systems controls. We will also explore the current technology on information systems. The skills built will be useful for individuals planning to take additional higher level business, accounting, and/or information systems classes; seeking careers in the finance and accounting departments of organizations; or interested in becoming an auditor, analyst, or consultant.
