ACC6040: Integrated Accounting Projects

Unit learning outcomes:

  1. Evaluate a research problem and specify key variables of the underlying accounting relationship.
  2. Conduct a targeted search of the accounting literature.
  3. Formulate a conceptual framework to guide the examination of the research problem.
  4. Develop hypotheses to support the testing of a relationship.
  5. Evaluate the most appropriate method of data collection in addressing a research problem.

  1. Demonstrate mastery of a global body of ACCOUNTING knowledge and practice, including knowledge of research principles and methods [AQF K1, K2, S1].
    • Demonstrate breadth and depth of global discipline knowledge;
    • Demonstrate knowledge of practice in the global environment;
    • Demonstrate knowledge of relevant research principles and methods;
    • Integrate theory and practice.

Providing AoL for CLO 4:

  1. Independently initiate, plan and execute a substantial project to meet agreed deliverables [AQF S5, A1, A2, A3].
    • Demonstrate autonomy and accountability in the execution of a substantial research or industry project;
    • Apply knowledge and skills with initiative and/or creativity to new situations.

Assignment 1: Literature Review 30%

The objective for this assignment is to fulfil the first stage of completing an accounting research proposal. As a research proposal you should look at current unresolved issues in accounting research and practice.
