Abstract

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an information technology tool which supports presentation, analysis and communication of the geospatial dimension of data. GIS tools have made significant contributions to decision making in marketing, finance, accounting and business intelligence. Business educators can help their students by using teaching resources that facilitate understanding and application of these powerful tools in online configurations similar to situations that graduates may encounter in their careers. This paper describes an international accounting GIS case, which was one module in a series of business GIS instructional modules. In addition, the paper provides feedback from students regarding the perceived benefits of using the case. Findings indicate that the international accounting GIS case is well received by students and contributes to student learning. Instructor notes are provided that include answers to the case questions.
