accounting essay

Purpose, Background, and General Criteria:

This writing assignment covers conceptual material and is designed to help build your understanding of the material through focused critical thinking. 

Content, concept application, and writing quality will impact your grade. 

Writing Assignment #1:

 

Now that we have completed chapters 1-5 you have been exposed to all four financial statements (Income Statement, Statement of Retained Earnings, Balance Sheet, and Statement of Cash Flows,) the account types (Revenues, Expenses, Assets, Liabilities, and Equity,) and ideas about internal controls and ethics as they relate to accounting. You have also worked on topics that include managements estimates for particular amounts, managements choice about an accounting method to use, or transaction that would likely require management approval. It is time to purposefully consider how these topics relate to each other. Additionally, it is important for business students to develop an ethical decision-making model and a sense of good ethical behavior. This assignment is intended to help work on both those objectives.

 

Part 1 Financial Statements and Internal Control

Describe why you think it is important for external stakeholders to have access to a companys financial statements. Consider who external stakeholders may be and provide some examples of how or why the external stakeholders would use a companys financial statements.

Why is an adequate environment and system of internal control important for an organization in order to produce reliable financial statements? Find an example of an organization that does not have strong internal control. (You can search to find examples or use personal experience, or both.) Describe what you think contributed to the organizations internal control weaknesses.

 

Part 2 Ethics and Fraud

Briefly describe what ethics are and how you think ethical standards apply to the business environment. Include in your answer a description of the fraud triangle and how you think the fraud triangle is related to both internal control and ethics.

How could management in a business unethically use their influence or responsibilities to produce financial statements that are misleading? Would it be fraudulent if they did so? Why or why not?

 

Part 3 Ethics and Cheating

Why do you think high ethical standards are an attribute that our school expects of its students? Do you think cheating or acts of academic dishonesty that occur in your academic environment impact the value of your education and the value of your college degree?

Do you think that a student who commits acts of academic dishonesty can be a trustworthy business partner in the future?

Philosophy (Aristotle)

Based on pages 1-9, write a detailed summary about the Philosopher Aristotle. (College paper for Philosophy)

Essay word count: minimum word count (1200) maximum word count (1500). No additional citations/sources besides pages 1-9.

Letter of Recommendation

Letter of recommendation to the UT Austin undergraduate admissions. I’m applying to their business school as a business management major.

It should be a simple letter of recommendation that needs 300 words and there’s no maximum. I’ve also given you extra help below if you need ideas about what to talk about.
You can write about me, my character, characteristics, skills, uniqueness, and just about everything else that is important.
Address it as if you are talking about me to someone else, for example "Mustafa is a great character to have in your presence" "he is" "he has been."

Judaism

For your first discussion board posting, reflect on the differences between the ways Tapper (author of Judaisms, our main textbook) and Fishbane (author of our supplementary text this week) introduce their subject. First, see if you can come up with a brief list of three differences. Then, ask yourself what might account for these differences. Share both your list and your subsequent reflection with the class on the discussion board.


**Both readings are attached below.

Ideologies and Individual Freedom

When is a person truly free in society? Discuss and explain what individual freedom means to you.  For example, ask yourself if a person can be free in a society where they feel unsafe, or are not treated equally and equitably. Based on your discussion and the characteristics you associate with a free society, identify the philosopher you feel best preserves individual freedom. Explain how that philosopher’s ideas best preserve individual freedom. Lastly, discuss the importance of individual freedom in society relative to the common good (what is in the best interest of all). Is there a proper balance between freedom, safety, and justice in society? What should that balance look like, especially if it means curtailing individual freedom in pursuit of ends that benefit society as a whole?
