Abstract

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is poised to change the accounting and auditing workplace significantly. RPA will likely shift the skillset needed by all accountants. Therefore, the accounting curriculum quickly needs to adapt to educate accountants of the future in this skillset. This paper presents a proposed course, focusing on the automation of accounting processes, to add to the accounting curriculum. The course includes an introduction of RPA and how to use the tools. The course focuses on a development framework for the implementation of technology as well as governance of the application.
