If you are admitted into Upper Division at the David Eccles School of Business, at some point you will take the ACCT 3600 course. This course is a continuation of what you learned in Accounting 2600, but with more applied learning. This means you will do the accounting books for a company for a year, using only a year’s worth of journal entries, previous years of income statements and so on.
Each student must do this project; there is nowhere to hide. Students work in groups to complete this project, but is not a simple group project. Each group spends an average between 80-120 hours working on this project.
Here are the top 10 feelings students have while working on the Accounting 3600 Project.
- Learning about the project on the first day of school.
- Picking your group partners. Choose wisely.
- Creating a schedule for specific pieces of your project.
- Wondering if you made the right decision to work with the people you chose.
- Realizing how much work the project actually is.
- Re-scheduling your project deadlines.
- Wondering why individuals in your group don’t help with anything, so you try to do everything yourself.
- Wanting to cry because your numbers don’t balance or add up.
- Trying to get your project all finished the night before it’s due.
- Actually turning it in and wondering why other groups have different answers.
