The Graduate School of the University of Maryland University College (UMUC) seeks adjunct faculty to teach in the Business and Management Program.  Specifically, we are looking for faculty to teach the following courses: 

Federal Income Taxation (ACCT 613): Prerequisite: ACCT 610. A case study-based, problem-oriented examination of fundamental federal tax concepts. Tax issues and controversies are explored in-depth. Emphasis is on applying tax laws, as opposed to learning individual tax rules. Methods of case analysis and research that are typically involved in tax planning and litigation are covered. Important definitions, judicially created rules, and other tax conventions are explored in great detail through the study of each one's genesis and purpose. Topics include tax issues that concern gross income, identification of the proper taxpayer, deductions, timing, income and deduction characterization, and deferral and capital gains and losses.

Auditing (ACCT 628): (Formerly ACCT 612) Prerequisite: ACCT 610. An in-depth examination of Generally Accepted Auditing Standards GAAS), as well as standards for attestation and other services. Alternative audit models are evaluated for both their practical relevance and their theoretical justification as informed by current research and emerging information technology. The use of computer-assisted auditing techniques (CAAT) and other computer-related technology for obtaining evidence is evaluated in terms of its effectiveness and suitability in diverse audit environments. Methods of evaluating internal control are considered in light of the risks encountered in new ways of conducting business, such as e-commerce. Professional ethical and legal responsibilities, as shaped by the contemporary professional, legal, and regulatory environments, are examined as they relate to audit risk, risk assessment, and audit program planning. The use of audit reports and other services as tools to support management control and decision making are considered.

International Accounting (ACCT 640): Prerequisite: ACCT 610. An exploration of international accounting and financial reporting. Focus is on evolving reporting requirements under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Accounting practices, as influenced by business operations, culture, and the inherent risk in international accounting environments, are compared.
