AC 6001 - Advanced Business Environment Concepts


This course is designed for accounting undergraduates in preparation for the Business Environment Concepts (BEC) section of the Uniform Certified Public Accounting exam. BEC tests knowledge and understanding of general topics such as those found in the subjects of economics and information technology, and the day-to-day financial management tasks that newly licensed CPAs perform, such as calculations involving ratios, valuation and budgeting.  Content covered includes knowledge and skills in the context of the five broad categories: a) corporate governance, b) economic concepts and analysis, c) financial management, d) information technology, and e) operations management.  The graduate-level course requires independent, accelerated or additional work appropriate for the graduate level.
