The Howard A. Winer Accounting Center for Electronic Learning and Business Measurement (ACELAB) is located in a newly renovated facility in the Jennison Classroom Building. The ACELAB is usually packed with undergraduate and graduate students working on fast-paced accounting tutorials or state-of-the-art software programs such as SAP or ACL. Many of Bentley’s top accounting majors work in the ACELAB, providing individual tutoring services to assist students through the sometimes challenging areas of accounting.
The newly renovated ACELAB comprises two facilities. The first is a classroom with 36 networked Pentium III computers and a dedicated Sony projector that can be used for classroom work and presentations. A high-quality, networked laser printer provides clear, distinct output for reports.
The second facility is the Breakout Room, a state-of-the-art facility that features 10 individual workstations, five group workstations with 42" Panasonic plasma display screens, and a conference room with a Mitsubishi projector.
The objectives of the ACELAB are:
- To integrate technology into current and developing accounting courses
- To form partnerships with business and not-for-profit entities who can provide software and case materials for student use
- To help students become the "whole business person.
