Course Description

Online education represents the single most important shift in the field of education since the invention of the printing press. With the advent of cost-effective communications technology, information is more readily available and accessible across the globe than ever before. In order to understand the impact that online education will have on the future of the accounting profession, we need to understand how online education has already changed the world for millions of people.
