Abstract

The accounting information systems (AIS) course is a core component of most accounting programs, but what it typically covers and how it’s typically taught is as varied as the number of instructors. As the AACSB Standard A7 indicates: “accounting degree programs include learning experiences that develop skills and knowledge related to the integration of information technology in accounting and business”. In this panel presentation, we looked at the approach of five experienced AIS instructors and compared and contrasted them. We highlight lessons learned and best practices.
