Confirmation.com has unveiled a set of teaching tools to better prepare future CPAs for the demands of the audit environment.
Brentwood-based Confirmation.com worked with Bentley University in Waltham, Mass., and Fordham University in Bronx, N.Y., to develop case study materials that bring real-world auditing applications into the classroom.
As part of the case study — titled Simply Soups Inc.: A Teaching Case Designed to Integrate the Electronic Confirmation Process into the Auditing Curriculum — Confirmation.com also created edu.Confirmation.com, which functions as a simulated audit for educational purposes to help accounting and auditing students better understand the beneficial role technology has in today’s audit practice.
“In recent years, there has been a noticeable shift of incorporating more case study materials and simulated programs into college curriculum because it can increase the students’ interest and motivation to actively learn a particular subject,” Chris Schellhorn, Confirmation.com CEO, said in a release.
Confirmation.com provides web-based audit confirmation solutions.
