Executive Summary

Significant changes have taken place on the Internet in recent years. The most prominent is the introduction of Web 2.0.

Accounting students are taught about the risks and controls of Web 2.0 as part of their studies, whereas Business Strategy students' exposure is limited to popular media and their own research. Contrary to expectation, it appears that being formally educated on Web 2.0 does not have a greater impact on user behavior than popular media.
