We will explore the ethical principles included with the code, the rules found within the code, situations which threaten a member’s compliance with code rules, and the AICPA conceptual framework approach to resolving threats to compliance.This course will also explore ethical issues related to recent advances in technology, as well as ethical concerns related to social media and networking.
