Ethics Rules for Accountants

Each student will write a paper on the ethical rules that have been promulgated for accountants.  Rules of ethics or codes of conduct have been established by many accounting associations and other authoritative bodies.  Each student will address at least two different sets of ethics rules or codes of conduct.  Students will assess how each set of rules or code of conduct helps to foster ethical behavior in accountants.  Students will also assess where those rules may fall short of providing thorough guidance to accountants about ethics and making ethical decisions.
