“Ethics in Management Accounting versus Financial Accounting”
July 19th, 2019
Go to the AICPA Website to read the current AICPA code of professional conduct, located at http://www.aicpa.org/Research/Standards/CodeofConduct/Pages/default.aspx. Next, assess the effectiveness of the current Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) code of professional conduct in promoting ethical behavior and providing guidance for the dilemmas managerial accountants are confronted with today. In your assessment, compare the IMA code of conduct to the AICPA code of professional conduct and its effectiveness. Assess the aspects of your job that are most likely to be challenged ethically and suggest the approach(es) you will take in order to handle these situations.
