Ethics: 50 Shades of GrayCOURSE ID: 50SHADES
DESCRIPTION

Ethics should be a black and white issue. However, if you ask most CPAs, they would say ethics is a very gray area. Why is this? It seems like at least once a month there is an article written in the Wall Street Journal about someone committing fraud to big corporations failing in their corporate governance responsibilities. We will discuss real-world cases such as Wells Fargo, Theranos, and the most current case of ethics violations in the news. Also, we will debate this topic – ethical considerations and webinars, webcasts and self-study. At times during this session, we will put a humorous twist in our discussion of ethics.
