Incorporating Project Based Learning in Introductory Accounting Course
Incorporating project based learning in an introductory accounting course for pre-MBA students.
Students work in groups to create a fictional business. Organizationally students are divided into groups of 4-5 in a creative and entrepreneurial comprehensive project. The basis for the comprehensive project is to incorporate project based learning (PBL)
Each group engages in an entrepreneurial exercise of developing a business idea from inception and initial organizational structure, addressing financial funding, and first year operating and capital budgets, and analyzing the results for viability as a going concern and fiscally sound business prospect.
The project is introduced at the beginning of the semester and there are deliverables throughout the semester culminating in a final business plan and viability analysis presented to the entire class
