Prepare your students to meet the needs of contemporary business owners and managers who rely on today's accounting professionals to identify and monitor enterprise risks and to provide quality assurance for a company's information systems. ACCOUNTING INFORMATION SYSTEMS, 11E focuses on two critical issues within accounting information systems that are in use today: enterprise systems and controls for maintaining those systems.
This book fully explores the integrated nature of AIS with its foundations in information technology, business processes, strategic management, security, and internal controls. Using a conversational and relaxed tone rather than using complex technical language, your students will easily grasp even the most challenging subjects as they explore today's critical AIS topics. This new edition equips students with today’s tools necessary for organizing and managing information to help them succeed and protect the integrity of their employer's information system.
