Every year the University of Mississippi offers an accountancy study abroad class in London, England. The title of the graduate-level class is “The Development of Accounting Thought.” The class is intended to help the students think about how accounting started as a discipline and about accounting’s contributions to society. One of the highlights of that trip is the visit to the British Museum to examine the cuneiform documents. This visit to the British Museum and the cuneiform exhibit serves to focus the students’ attention on accountancy’s contributions to the ancient world and to modern society.
