There is no set text for this unit.
There will be various readings in the unit that will be released on an 'as necessary' basis.
We will look at sections of Gill, M. (2009) Accountant's Truth: Knowledge and Ethics in the Financial World Oxford, Oxford University Press. This is available online through the university library.
This unit is an intensive unit over 5 days. You are expected to attend each day of the unit activities.
Not attending a day will affect your ability to complete the reflective journal. If the absence is due to illness or some other extenuating circumstance, you should provide a medical certificate or other evidence (as is discussed in the assignment extension form). The purpose of this is to allow for an adjustment to the percentages for each reflective journal - as each journal contributes 20 per cent to the final mark.
The unit particulars suggests that strict participation applies and you should present professionally. Participants are expected to attend and participate all day, every day the unit runs. Participants also commit to dress as a professional intern in a professional services firm.
