Course Description:
The past years has witnessed a number of high-profile corporate scandals: Enron, Tyco International, Healthsouth, Global Crossing, and WorldCom (now-MCI). While these are the most glaring, there are many more companies whose shareholders and employees have suffered as stock prices have fallen, such as Cisco, Nokia, Lucent Technologies, and most internet-related businesses. The course examines recent developments in finance and accounting and a series of corporate accounting scandals on the heels of the Enron debacle that have led to new sweeping accounting guidelines, proposals, and legislation—most notably, the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act. Many of the issues surrounding the Act, such as the cost, problems, software and information technologies, and strategies for dealing with the SOX, are discussed. The general issues on corporate governance are also covered.
