SACS AOL Report Spring 2006 MAcc Program 2

3 SECTION I LISTING OF LEARNING GOALS & OBJECTIVES FOR THE MASTER OF ACCOUNTING PROGRAM The Department of Accounting consists of eighteen full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty. Four of these faculty teach in the area of Business Information Systems Management, and one teaches in the area of Business Law. The Department is responsible for five of fourteen Bachelor of Business Administration [BBA] Core undergraduate courses and one of seven Master of Business Administration [MBA] Core graduate courses. The Department offers an undergraduate Major in Accounting. In addition, we offer the Master of Accounting [MAcc] program. As of the Fall 2005 semester, there were approximately 630 declared Accounting majors at the undergraduate level and approximately 100 MAcc students. Across fiscal years 2000 to 2004, we averaged 94 Accounting Major graduates each year and just over twelve MAcc graduates each year. The Department of Accounting has identified six student Learning Goals for our Master of Accounting Program: Critical Thinking, Ethics & Control, Information Quality, Interaction, Perspectives, and Technology & Systems. Each of these six Goals is broken down into more specific Learning Objectives. To emphasize the interconnectedness of the Learning Goals and their applicability across the MAcc Program, we have presented these Goals as puzzle pieces. SACS AOL Report Spring 2006 MAcc Program 3

4 There are multiple technical content areas in Accounting for example, Financial Accounting, Tax, and Auditing. It is easy for both the faculty and the students to fall into the habit of thinking of these areas separately. Faculty usually teach in only one or two areas. Students are required to learn some in all areas, but sometimes don t see the connection between them. By choosing Learning Goals that focus on broad skills and concepts, we recognize and emphasize their importance throughout the Program. If communicated and implemented well, the students are more likely to view each course as an integrated part of their learning, rather than separate blocks of Accounting content. We cannot focus solely on our technical content areas if we wish to adequately prepare our students for their careers. As our Departmental Mission Statement says: We seek to prepare our students for professional opportunities by: Helping them develop technical competency (as to subject matter), facility with technology, business acumen, global perspective, communication skills, and confidence. We seek to prepare our students for long-term success by: Helping them build critical thinking, problem solving, communication, teamwork, life-long learning, and leadership skills. Thus, our ultimate goal for our Master of Accounting students is that the knowledge and skills they gain while in our Program will not only prepare them for entry into the Accounting profession but also advancement and success in life. I. A. Listing of Learning Goals and Objectives for the Master of Accounting Program The Learning Goals & Objectives for the Master of Accounting Program (listed below) were most recently revised during the summer of Goal 1.0 Critical Thinking Each student can identify and research accounting problems, critically evaluate solutions, and present solutions to current accounting challenges. Each student can develop information to support business decision-making. 1.1 Each student can identify accounting and business problems and can use the appropriate research tools to develop decision-relevant information. 1.2 Each student can develop effective solutions to accounting problems.

Goal 3.0 Information Quality Each student understands the importance of high quality accounting information and the threats to accounting information reliability and relevance. Each student understands the role of auditors, internal controls, accounting systems, and corporate governance mechanisms in promoting high quality accounting information. 3.1 Each student understands the importance and elements of high quality accounting information. 3.2 Each student understands the forces that threaten accounting information quality and the mechanisms designed to promote such quality. Goal 4.0 Interaction Each student can demonstrate effective collaboration, leadership, negotiation, and communication skills. 4.1 Each student can work effectively as part of a team either as a leader or participant and can effectively collaborate and negotiate within the team. 4.2 Each student can communicate effectively in formats appropriate to the situation and audience. Goal 5.0 Perspective Each student can interpret and evaluate the impact that financial, regulatory, and global developments have on accounting and its role in society.

6 (Terminology has been changed since the 2004 Report. The items we refer to as Goals now were referred to as GSLOs in the previous Report. The components of each Goal are now called Objectives, but were referred to as SSLOs in the previous Report.) I. B. Knowledge/Skill/Attitude Balance The Master of Accounting Program is designed to challenge our students to acquire knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will help them become successful members of the Accounting profession. Exhibit I-1 summarizes the connection between the Program s Learning Goals and the knowledge, skill, and attitude categories. The emphasis on and balance between knowledge and skill oriented goals is appropriate for a professional program with a significant quantitative component. Success in the Accounting profession requires considerable knowledge and strong skills. For example, the Accounting profession has instituted a 150 semester hour requirement to get licensed as a CPA [Certified Public Accountant]. In addition, professional attitudes toward ethical issues and the importance of quality information are necessary for success.

C. Goals & Learning Objectives Differentiation The Learning Goals of the Master of Accounting Program identify major areas of desired learning, such as Critical Thinking (#1.0). The Learning Objectives focus on specific aspects of those Goals, such as identifying problems and gathering relevant information (#1.1). I. D. Compliance with Disciplinary Conventions & Guidelines The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International [AACSB] has specific curriculum guidelines to which all accredited programs must adhere. The Coles College of Business received initial business accreditation from AACSB in 1994 and successfully completed the reaffirmation process in In addition, AACSB separately accredits Accounting programs. (It does not separately accredit any other business discipline.) The KSU SACS AOL Report Spring 2006 MAcc Program 6

7 Department of Accounting received initial accreditation of our undergraduate and Master of Accounting Programs in 2001, and reaffirmation in Thus, as far as our international business accrediting body, AACSB, is concerned, the goals and objectives listed for the BBA in Accounting and the MAcc are in compliance. See In addition to AACSB guidelines, we consulted information provided by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants [AICPA] when developing the Learning Goals of the Master of Accounting Program. The AICPA developed a Core Competency Framework for students entering the accounting profession. See The purpose of this framework was to communicate: the competencies all students should be expected to have upon entry into the profession regardless of where they pursue employment (public/industry/government/non-profit) or the specific accounting services they will perform. The Framework focuses on skills and is not structured around traditional subject/content areas or accounting services (www.aicpa.org/edu/faqs.htm). The Framework contains twenty competencies, grouped in three areas functional, personal, and broad business perspective. Exhibit I-2 identifies the AICPA competencies related to each of our Learning Goals. Exhibit I-2: AICPA Core Competencies Matched to Master of Accounting Program Learning Goals Goal 1.0 Critical Thinking Each student can identify and research accounting problems, critically evaluate solutions, and present solutions to current accounting challenges. Each student can develop information to support business decision-making. Goal 2.0 Ethics & Control Each student can recognize, analyze, and propose effective solutions to ethical problems encountered in the accounting profession. Each student understands the role of corporate governance, risk management, and internal controls in promoting ethical behavior, preventing or deterring fraud, and enhancing the achievement of organizational goals.

E. Building Upon Prior Learning The Master of Accounting Program builds on student learning in business and Accounting areas that occurred in prerequisite courses. A student who does not have a business undergraduate degree must complete Business Foundation courses prior to graduate work. Foundation requirements are the knowledge and skills of a broad set of business disciplines for example, Business Law, Finance, and Marketing. The following KSU undergraduate courses would satisfy the Business Foundation requirements: ACCT 2100 Introduction to Financial Accounting SACS AOL Report Spring 2006 MAcc Program 8

9 ACCT 2200 Introduction to Managerial Accounting ECON 2100 Principles of Microeconomics ECON 2200 Principles of Macroeconomics ECON 2300 Business Statistics BLAW 2200 Legal and Ethical Environment of Business FIN 3100 Principles of Finance MKTG 3100 Principles of Marketing MGT 3100 Management and Behavioral Science A student who does not have an undergraduate degree in Accounting must complete Accounting Prerequisite courses prior to starting MAcc Accounting courses. The KSU courses that would satisfy the Accounting Prerequisites are: ACCT 3100 Intermediate Financial Accounting & Auditing ACCT 3300 Accounting Information Systems ACCT 4050 Intermediate Financial Accounting II ACCT 4150 Auditing & Assurance In addition, MAcc students who intend to take MAcc Tax courses must complete the equivalent of KSU s ACCT 3200 [Concepts in Federal Taxation] course as a prerequisite. Once all the Business Foundation and Accounting Prerequisite courses are completed, a student is ready to begin the actual Master of Accounting Program. To obtain a MAcc degree, students must take 30 semester hours of credit. The 30 hours are composed of 18 hours of Core Requirements and 12 hours of Elective Requirements. The MAcc Core Requirements are as follows: ACCT 8100 Theory of Business Reporting ACCT 8220 Issues in Managerial Accounting ACCT 8230 Studies in Accounting Information Systems ACCT 8400 Seminar in Auditing BLAW 8340 Business Negotiation ACCT 8990 Forensic Accounting For their Elective Requirements, MAcc students select four courses. Elective Courses: ACCT 8110 Advanced Business Reporting ACCT 8270 Accounting & Legal Issues in International Business ACCT 8300 Seminar in Valuation of Closely Held Businesses ACCT 8510 Tax Research & Procedure ACCT 8520 Corporate Tax & Shareholders ACCT 8530 Taxation of Flow-Through Entities ACCT 8550 Estate & Gift Taxation ACCT 8570 Selected Topics in Taxation SACS AOL Report Spring 2006 MAcc Program 9

10 Up to two non-accounting elective courses may be selected from courses in the KSU Career Growth MBA Program (except ACCT 8000) or the KSU Master of Science in Information Systems program (if approved by the Accounting Department Chair and the MSIS Program Director). In addition to the courses listed above, Directed Study and Special Topics/Projects options are available in the curriculum. These options represent individualized research projects and non-recurring courses. If students select all their elective courses in Tax, they may request to have the words Tax Concentration printed on their diploma. A review of the prerequisites and the requirements of the MAcc Program clearly shows that the Program builds on prior learning. For example, as prerequisites to the Program students must take the equivalent of ACCT 2100 (Introduction to Financial Accounting), ACCT 3100 (Intermediate Financial Accounting & Auditing), ACCT 4050 (Intermediate Financial Accounting II), and ACCT 4150 (Auditing & Assurance). These four courses are focused on financial accounting and auditing issues. Within the MAcc Program, students continue their study in these areas in the required core courses ACCT 8100 (Theory of Business Reporting) and ACCT 8400 (Seminar in Auditing). I. F. Lower-Order and Higher-Order Thinking Bloom s Taxonomy provides a classification system for levels of thinking/learning. There are six levels: Knowledge, Understanding, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, and Evaluation. Naturally students are expected to focus on lower levels of learning at the beginning of their college careers and in beginning courses in a discipline. Then they are expected to progress to more emphasis on higher levels of learning near graduation and in graduate work. While there may still be the acquisition of new knowledge and understanding in new areas of graduate work, the application through evaluation levels will be emphasized. Exhibit I-3 provides a summary of how each of our Learning Goals relates to Bloom s hierarchy.

11 SECTION II LINKING OUTCOMES TO PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MASTER OF ACCOUNTING PROGRAM II. A. Linkage of All Program Requirements to Learning Objectives The Department Assurance of Learning [AOL] Committee worked with the faculty who teach in the MAcc Program on the mapping of the courses to the Goals and Objectives. As a result of that process and of questions about the great similarity between the MAcc and the Career Growth MBA Program, the Department decided to significantly restructure the MAcc Program. That restructuring was guided partly by discussions of the appropriate Learning Goals. We are pleased with the new structure of the MAcc Program, which was approved last year and implemented in the Fall of One result of the restructuring process was that we put our AOL work on hold last year for this Program. At this point, our mapping of courses to the Goals and Objectives is still in process. Exhibit II-1 shows the most recent draft mapping of the Core Requirements courses to the Goals and Objectives. We still need to develop the mapping of the Elective Courses. Exhibit II-1 Mapping of Master of Accounting Program Core Requirements Courses to Learning Goals and Objectives Goal Objective Course 1.0 Critical Thinking 2.0 Ethics & Control 3.0 Information Quality 1.1 Each student can identify and research accounting and business problems and can use the appropriate research tools to develop decision-relevant information. 1.2 Each student can develop effective solutions to accounting problems. 2.1 Each student can recognize ethical weaknesses in accounting situations and can propose effective solutions to those weaknesses. 2.2 Each student understands how corporate governance, risk management, and internal controls impact ethical behavior. 3.1 Each student understands the importance and elements of high quality accounting information. 3.2 Each student understands the forces that threaten accounting information quality and the mechanisms designed to promote such quality.

BLAW 8340 ACCT 8990 BLAW 8340 ACCT 8100 ACCT 8990 ACCT 8100 ACCT 8230 ACCT 8990 II. B. Reinforcing Goal / Learning Objective Attainment through Multiple Program Requirements When we revised the MAcc Program, we structured it to make sure that our Learning Goals would all be covered in the Core Requirements. We have all the Learning Goals addressed in the ACCT 8990 course, which is the Program Capstone, plus at least one other Core Requirement course. Therefore, the Goals will all be addressed twice in the Core Requirements. Once we map the Elective Courses, we expect to have at least three courses mapped to each Goal, providing reinforcement of the Goals throughout the Program. II. C. Lower Division, Program Admission, and Prerequisite Requirements Admission to the Program Admission to the Master of Accounting Program is granted to people showing high promise of success in graduate Accounting study. The requirements for all applicants, as described in the KSU Graduate Catalog are: Baccalaureate degree from an institution accredited in a manner accepted by KSU. Minimum cumulative adjusted grade point average of 2.80 on a 4.0 scale. Minimum total score of 500 of the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Minimum of two years of significant business experience is strongly desired. When there is a conflict in the indicators of success from the GPA and GMAT, exceptions may be made if the applicant s educational background, excellence in performance in outside activities, creativity and leadership, or accomplishments in business and professional activities are sufficient to indicate success in the Program. At a minimum, a professional resume, two letters of recommendation, and a personal SACS AOL Report Spring 2006 MAcc Program 12

13 statement of objectives will be required to determine the appropriateness of an exception. International applicants must meet additional KSU requirements as described on page 19 of the Graduate Catalog. Prerequisite Course Work in Business As mentioned in Section I. E., a student who does not have a business undergraduate degree must complete Business Foundation courses prior to graduate work. The following KSU undergraduate courses would satisfy the Business Foundation requirements: ACCT 2100 Introduction to Financial Accounting ACCT 2200 Introduction to Managerial Accounting ECON 2100 Principles of Microeconomics ECON 2200 Principles of Macroeconomics ECON 2300 Business Statistics BLAW 2200 Legal and Ethical Environment of Business FIN 3100 Principles of Finance MKTG 3100 Principles of Marketing MGT 3100 Management and Behavioral Science Prerequisite Course Work in Accounting A student who does not have an undergraduate degree in Accounting must complete Accounting Prerequisite courses prior to starting MAcc Accounting courses. The KSU courses that would satisfy the Accounting Prerequisites are: ACCT 3100 Intermediate Financial Accounting & Auditing ACCT 3300 Accounting Information Systems ACCT 4050 Intermediate Financial Accounting II ACCT 4150 Auditing & Assurance In addition, MAcc students who intend to take MAcc Tax courses must complete the equivalent of KSU s ACCT 3200 [Concepts in Federal Taxation] course as a prerequisite. All of these business and Accounting prerequisite courses must be completed before beginning the MAcc Accounting courses. To achieve the Learning Goals we have for the MAcc Program, a student must have the proper preparation. II. D. Core Upper Division (or Graduate) Course Requirements of the Program As described in Section I. E., all MAcc students must take 18 hours of Core Requirements courses. The MAcc Core Requirements are as follows: ACCT 8100 Theory of Business Reporting SACS AOL Report Spring 2006 MAcc Program 13

14 ACCT 8220 Issues in Managerial Accounting ACCT 8230 Studies in Accounting Information Systems ACCT 8400 Seminar in Auditing BLAW 8340 Business Negotiation ACCT 8990 Forensic Accounting As mentioned earlier, when we restructured the MAcc Program, we considered the Learning Goals. We made sure that all our Learning Goals would be covered in these required courses. II. E. Elective Upper Division (or Graduate) Requirements of the Program The remaining 12 hours of the MAcc are made up by electives. The following elective courses in Accounting are available: ACCT 8110 Advanced Business Reporting ACCT 8270 Accounting & Legal Issues in International Business ACCT 8300 Seminar in Valuation of Closely Held Businesses ACCT 8510 Tax Research & Procedure ACCT 8520 Corporate Tax & Shareholders ACCT 8530 Taxation of Flow-Through Entities ACCT 8550 Estate & Gift Taxation ACCT 8570 Selected Topics in Taxation Directed Study and Special Topics/Projects options are also available. In addition to the list of Accounting electives above, students are allowed to select up to 2 non- Accounting courses (6 hours) from the KSU Career Growth MBA Program as electives. For example, a student might want to take additional Finance courses or Business Law courses to broaden their skills. Some MAcc students are interested in a Tax Concentration and will select all Tax courses (from the list above) for their elective hours. Other MAcc students are interested in an information systems focus for their work. Those students may select up to 6 hours from courses in the KSU Master of Science in Information Systems Program, if they have permission of the Accounting Department Chair and the MSIS Program Director. We have not yet finished the mapping of our elective courses in Accounting to the Learning Goals. However, when that is completed, we expect that each Goal will be reinforced in at least one elective course. II. F. Building upon General Education Outcomes Not Applicable SACS AOL Report Spring 2006 MAcc Program 14

15 II. G. Required Practicums and Internships Not Applicable II. H. Capstone Experience: ACCT 8990 As part of the Fall 2005 restructuring of the MAcc Program, MAcc students are now required to take ACCT 8990 [Forensic Accounting], which is a Capstone course. Prior to taking ACCT 8990, students must complete at least 12 hours of 8000-level courses, including ACCT 8100 [Theory of Business Reporting] and ACCT 8400 [Seminar in Auditing]. Course description from the KSU Graduate Catalog: ACCT 8990 Forensic Accounting This course examines current issues in forensic accounting and fraud investigation, including the nature of fraud, who commits fraud, types of fraud (fraudulent financial reporting, asset misappropriation, etc.), fraud prevention, fraud detection, and fraud investigation/prosecution. The course is designed for graduate accounting students with strong backgrounds in financial accounting and auditing. The course will be taught in a seminar format with a great deal of interaction in class. Each of the Learning Goals for the MAcc Program is addressed in the Capstone Course. It is in this course where we will be performing our overall Program Assessment. SACS AOL Report Spring 2006 MAcc Program 15

16 SECTION III LINKING OUTCOMES TO METHODS THAT COLLECT EVIDENCE OF AOL FOR THE MASTER OF ACCOUNTING PROGRAM III. A. Focus of the Methods that Collect Evidence of AOL for Assessing Students' Knowledge, Skills, Attitudes We plan to use course-embedded methods for our AOL assessments in the Master of Accounting Program. We expect the assessments will be incorporated as regular components of the courses, and will affect student course grades. Therefore, the motivation of the students to perform well on the AOL activities should be high. We are using a course-embedded approach for both the assessments throughout the Program and for the overall Program Assessment, where we measure student learning near the end of the Program. At the time of the writing of this Report, we have not completed any assessments. (See the discussion of the schedule in Section V.) This semester (Spring 2006) we are initiating the overall Program Assessment. Because of its function as a Capstone course, Program Assessment for the MAcc Program is being done in ACCT 8990 [Forensic Accounting]. Since this is the overall Program Assessment, all Learning Goals are being assessed. Exhibit III-1 identifies the Objectives being assessed and the assessment vehicles that have been planned. Exhibit III-1: Program Assessment Plans for Master of Accounting Program Goal Objective Course Vehicle 1.0 Critical Thinking 1.2 Each student can develop effective solutions to accounting problems. ACCT 8990 Exam question Exam #1 2.0 Ethics & Control 2.2 Each student understands how corporate governance, risk management, and internal controls impact ethical behavior.
