Act or Be Acted Upon: Revolutionizing the Accounting Curriculum Using Experiential Data Analytics

October 22, 2018 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

About the Program/Learning Objective

Join the Stan Ross Department of Accountancy as we welcome Vernon J. Richardson, professor of Accounting and the G. William Glezen Distinguished Chair of Accounting at the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas. While the mounds of data proliferate and the capabilities of machines increasingly do much of the accounting work, the role of the accountant is changing, potentially in a dramatic way.  At the same time, accounting curricula have barely changed over the past thirty years. In this talk, Professor Richardson will discuss ways for data analytics to saturate each course in the accounting curricula, using experiential data analytics to help develop higher order skills to sustain a competitive advantage over machines and others that might work to disintermediate the accounting role.
