Field Consulting Project
- 3 credits
This course engages students in conducting field consulting for local businesses. Teams of three to four students work with host firms to identify real business problems related to accounting and information systems and formulate and implement solutions to those problems. Strong emphasis is placed upon critical and creative thinking in problem identification and solution templating. Teams develop a written executive summary and implementation plan and make presentations to the host firm's management. There is a strong orientation toward developing skills that will be useful in consulting, auditing and management problem solving situations. The course may be taken only by students enrolled in accounting graduate programs.
