I wish this course was provided at the end of the 4 year bachelors in accounting. It does an excellent job taking common terminology and differentiating them, then puts them in context for work life. I probably heard something along these lines in accounting 101, then it gets a little lost in details of advanced classes. This really brings an accountant back to a core view after being at the point of understanding the debits & credits easily.

Very good. The instructor really packed in great examples and took a deep look at ethics in a 2 hour timeframe. I liked the practical applications for me as an HR leader.

This course did a great job of explaining why businesses should better evaluate their soft controls such as tone at the top since they can influence hard controls.
