Implementation of the EEPAD Framework of Business Processes in an Accounting Information Systems Course


  • Scott Leong


Given the broad content coverage of accounting information systems (AIS) classes, many accounting instructors are faced with the challenge of producing a cohesive set of class projects that provide students with integrated and practical experience. This paper describes how a set of projects can be integrated using the EEPAD framework and simulating business processes through a computerized market. The simulation complements the theoretical concepts presented in AIS textbooks by providing practical experience. Based upon the encouraging results, comments are given related to the possible adoption and/or adaptation by other AIS instructors.
