Ethics: Caesar’s Wife: Tipping the Delicate Balance of Leadership and Ethics (Virginia Approved 2021)

In today’s complicated world, CPAs carry an increasing burden of public trust. As in the past, they are expected to give sound, ethical advice on accounting matters. Yet, what used to be an end is now just a beginning. The press, the government, business leaders and others look to CPAs to bring judgment, honesty, clarity and transparency to many murky issues. This course goes beyond just “the rules” to discuss broader and deeper issues affecting the profession and your role in it.
