  • The topics in this course are primarily designed around your final research project and providing others with constructive comments regarding their research. Topic 1: Ethical concerns

Now that you have conducted a good part of your research for this project, reflect on how professional accounting leaders initiate new policies regarding accounting standards relating to your topic.  Do you feel the process for initiating new accounting policies  is fair or do you see any ethical concerns as to how polices are initiated, reviewed and adopted by accounting standards boards.  In reviewing your classmates’ comments do you think the type of accounting policy making organization (FASB vs SEC for example) makes a difference as to how policies are adopted? Why or why not?

  • Topic 2: Hypothesis (i.e., your expectations and predictions of new unresolved problems)

Now that you have conducted a good part of your research for this project, post one or more hypothesis (i.e., guess as to how new problems will be addressed in the future) regarding what your research to revealed and state why you feel this is how the issue will be addressed. Start with your research question as included in your IRB Application and your study objectives  from Week 1. Briefly explain how the background and history of your research topic lead you from the question (include as part of your posting) to your one or more research hypotheses and/or predicted unresolved questions. Review your colleagues’ responses and note it you agree or disagree indicating why or why not with their hypothesis based on their research topic? 

Then, in the week 6 discussion forum, select the discussion topic thread and then select Reply to add your response to each discussion topic.
