Reminder on ACCT 330 to 303 Number Change and OM to OSCM Prefix Change

Updates to Accounting 303 and deletion of Accounting 330:

Effective fall 2020, ACCT 303: Accounting for Decision Making will be required for all School of Business students, including Accounting and Finance majors, and ACCT 330 will no longer be offered. ACCT 303 has been updated to include elements and learning outcomes of ACCT 330.

Students who completed ACCT 303 prior to fall 2020 will be unable to change their majors to accounting or finance as this is not the updated version of the course. If you have questions regarding this change please speak to an academic advisor in the School of Business.

The updated ACCT 303 is a survey class which includes elements of Auditing, Tax, Cost and Financial Accounting. The class will:

  • Examine the types of financial audit opinions given and the impact of these opinions,
  • Provide an overview of tax,
  • Examine managerial accounting input into planning and financial accounting from the viewpoint of preparers and users of financial statements, and
    • This includes a detailed review of the accounting cycle, preparing financial statements to reflect financing, operating, and investing decisions of the firm and using financial statement information to make financing, operating and investing decisions for the firm.
  • Review elements of fraud and review and discuss different cases of fraud in reporting.

ISOM Updates and Changes (OM to OSCM):

Effective fall 2020, OM (Operations Management) will be reflected as OSCM (Operations & Supply Chain Management). When searching for OM courses in Patriot Web, please select OSCM. OSCM 303 is equivalent to OM 303.
