Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration: Fostering Professional Communication Skills in a Graduate Accounting Certificate Program
Brizee, Allen; Langmead, Joseph
Across the Disciplines, v11 n1 Jun 2014
For decades, scholars and working professionals have known that accountants struggle with communication. Experts agree that integrating communication pedagogy into accounting courses is the most effective way of addressing this problem, but an integrated approach is not always possible. In this programmatic and pedagogical article, we address this issue by reporting on the developments of a professional communication course as part of a summer graduate accounting certificate program. The article discusses university-industry collaboration, as well as collaboration between the Sellinger School of Business and the Writing Department at Loyola University Maryland. The article also outlines the pilot stage assignment-based assessment of student work.
