Accounting courses are often taught in silos at colleges and universities and students are not aware of their integration. Accounting instructors are in a unique position to help students ‘connect the dots’ and obtain a better understanding of the accounting program and discipline.
Accounting instructors can then guide students throughout the program by discussing course integration, career opportunities, and keys to success. This discussion should begin in the introductory accounting courses to attract students to the major, and in upper level courses to help accounting majors create or develop career paths.
This project was developed to help instructors achieve this goal.
This article is from the Accounting Instructor’s Resource, an electronic journal that provides teaching tips and insights to those who teach accounting and other business courses.
