This is a 4-hour video conference (4 credits on Ethics) led by Michael Pakaluk, Ph.D., author of the widely-used textbook Accounting Ethics, Senior Research Consultant for Audit Analytics, and Professor of Ethics and Social Philosophy at the Busch School of Business at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.
After reviewing the principles of accounting ethics, and some basic ideas of accounting professionalism, we will look at some recent high-profile scandals, including the KPMG partners “stealing the exam” scandal, and the most recent high-profile scandal, surrounding the astonishing rise and fall of Luckin Coffee. The seminar is a good mix of the concrete and the conceptual. Vigorous discussion is encouraged and fostered. This seminar (now a VC) received rave reviews in 2019.
