Course Overview

Fundamental principles and theories of financial accounting. Emphasis placed on the preparation and use of financial statements for the corporation. Interpretation and use of financial statement information in business decisions, and a study of the system that produces this information. Open to business majors and minors, entrepreneurship minors and arts administration majors.

Course Advantages

Financial Accounting is a good introduction to the business world. Students learn the international business language. The accounting system is used to create summarized financial data in the form of financial statements. Understanding how business decisions may impact the financial condition of an entity and the impact they on those financial statements is a key to understanding how businesses work.

Additional Information

A basic understanding of Microsoft Excel is required. Many of the class assignments and exams are done using Microsoft Excel. I teach the same course that I teach during a regular 15-week course in five weeks. Expect to spend about 25 hours per week preparing for the three exams. About every 11 days, there is an exam on three to four chapters.

Faculty will contact all students after the Wednesday, December 20, registration deadline.
