Due to the unforeseen snow storms, we were forced to cancel three classes this semester. We have made up the time with extra homework assignments, take home quizzes and this assignment.
I would like you to watch two of the following three films:
This film can be accessed on Netflix. If you don’t have access to a Netflix account and would like to view this, please let me know. I have a couple of copies that I can lend to students.
While watching this film, please pay special attention to different costs incurred and be ready to write about how you would classify those costs – product or period. Also look for other Financial Accounting aspects presented throughout the film.
Enron: Smartest Guys in the Room
This film can be accessed through a link posted to Blackboard.
While watching this film, please pay special attention to the ethical issues presented and how accounting played a major role in the fraud that occurred at Enron. What were the consequences of this fraud?
Enron: Bigger than Enron
This film is on reserve under my name (Delano-Dykas) at the library circulation desk.
While watching this film, please pay special attention to the ethical issues presented and how Arthur Andersen and other accounting firms violated their own ethical code for their clients. What were the consequences of their violations?
For each film (remember, you must watch 2 out of the 3), please write a 2 page, typed, double-spaced paper.
