ACCT 6100 - Effective Communication for the Accountant♦


(3 sem. cr.) An essential skill for nearly all accountants is the ability to effectively communicate with organizations to manage internal and external relationships. This course emphasizes the importance of communication in accounting and provides students the opportunity to practice using the tools required for effectual and efficient presentation of information while gaining critical-thinking, reading, and scholarly-writing skills. Students explore various written and presentational forms of communication that accountants use within organizational and managerial settings. Students examine techniques for developing and presenting white papers, memoranda used to communicate issues and recommendations to management, and financial and nonfinancial information. They learn about concepts in balanced communication coverage and how to adapt to constantly changing modes of communication, including social networking, blogging, and using professional organizations and training programs to their advantage. Through these activities, students gain a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the accountant as well as the ethical methodologies required to maintain a professional obligation to the community and their clients.
