Once again I'm "thinking of a master plan, this aint nothing but sweat inside my hand".........ok, I have school on my mind. I need to devise a roadmap for the last classes to take to complete my degree. Here are my choices for:
This class is required:
ACCT 495: Contemporary Issues in Accounting Practice (3) (Intended as a final, capstone course to be taken in a student's last 15 credits.) Prerequisites: ACCT 311, 321 and 422 and BMGT 364. A study of accounting that integrates knowledge gained through previous coursework and experience and builds on that conceptual foundation through integrative analysis, practical application and critical thinking. Emerging issues in accounting, business transactions, and financing are considered. Web accounting and business technology, accounting theory, and management techniques are used to research and analyze developing issues in the workplace. Topics include e-commerce, financial derivatives, balanced scorecards, and the changing nature of financial reporting and risk management.
But I have the options for the other three courses to take. Here are the options:
ACCT 411: Ethics and Professionalism in Accounting (3) Prerequisite: ACCT 311. Analysis and discussion of issues relating to ethics and professionalism in accounting. The AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and the reasoning, philosophy, and application of that code are examined.

My choices have to be calculated and well thought out.
