Babson College invites applicants for an Adjunct Lecturer position in Accounting Information Systems starting in the Summer 2018 semester.
Course description: This course examines the interplay between accounting functions, control and automated information systems as commonly found in business. You will learn how to use, evaluate, and audit automated systems, and understand state-of-the-art information systems as they relate to the organization and presentation of accounting data. In addition to concepts of information data quality, storage, retrieval and visualization, the course also introduces advanced technologies such as robotic process automation (RPA), blockchain, and cognitive computing. We will get “hands-on” with several applications and, working with a business, evaluate the internal controls of one of their business processes and corresponding systems.
We seek an intellectually curious colleague who is aligned with Babson's mission of educating entrepreneurial leaders who create economic and social value everywhere. Our commitment to diversity of all kinds empowers our students to consider possibilities beyond their own individual experiences – to design products and processes, found companies and create value that will transform businesses, communities and lives.
