“Money makes the world go ’round” – you might have heard this phrase before. You might even agree with it. Of course, businesses need to make money in order to survive and prosper. Since this week is all about money (accounting and finance), I hope you will come up with many topics to talk about. But here are some suggestions:
- Does accounting as a career path appeal to you? Why, why not?
- What do you think of when you hear the term “Wall Street?”
- Do you think that securities markets should be regulated? Why, why not?
- What issues come to your mind when you think of investing for your future?
Here is the requirment of the discussion forum
weekly discussion forum
What is the purpose of the discussion forum and how will I be
The main purpose of the weekly discussion forum is for students to ENGAGE WITH EACH OTHER in
meaningful and respectful discussions. Each week, I will suggest a few topics to discuss even though I
would much rather see you come up with topics that YOU would enjoy discussing with each other. To
keep the discussions manageable, we assign each student to a group of about 15 students.
PARTICIPATION in these weekly discussion foums is also an important part of your grade. Here are the
guidelines that we use to grade you:
ï‚· We expect at least two posts/replies each week. To spread the posts out over the week, we
expect each student to have AT LEAST ONE POST/REPLY BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT and then AT LEAST ONE
MORE POST/REPLY BETWEEN THURSDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT.
ï‚· Your posts/replies in each of these two time periods (Mon â€“ Wed, Thurs â€“ Sun) will be graded as
o 0 POINTS: You fail to make a post/reply on time.
o 1 POINT: You write a few sentences that are not terribly original and appear to be written
to fulfill the requirement.
o 2 POINTS: You write a substantial post/reply (exceeding two or three sentences) that
outlines an interesting idea, contributes in meaningful ways to the group discussion and
that is well written.
ï‚· Therefore the MAXIMUM that you can achieve each week is 4 POINTS.
ï‚· While each discussion forum will stay open beyond the deadline of your posts/replies (so that
you can continue your discussions if you wish), we will ignore any posts after Sunday of a given
