Accounting Information Systems (2107AFE)

Information systems and technology are playing increasingly important roles in all areas of business and represent a significant organisational resource. An accounting information system (AIS) is a specialised information system designed to collect, process and report information related to the financial aspects of business events to permit management to make timely, informed decisions. As a user of an AIS, the accountant will participate in the design of the system and requires a sound understanding of its operation. As a manager or auditor, the accountant needs sufficient knowledge of AIS to evaluate its cost-effectiveness, assess its integrity and the reliability of information produced, and guide the implementation of improved systems. This course seeks to provide you with fundamental skills and knowledge to enable you to successfully perform these tasks. Prerequisites: 1102AFE Accounting for Decision Making and 2102AFE/2108AFE Financial Accounting. Co-requisites: NIL Incompatible: 1103AFE Accounting Information Systems
