Section Information for Fall 2022

Accounting is called the language of business. As such, the objective of the course is to learn to read, understand, and analyze financial statements. This course adopts a decision-maker perspective of accounting by emphasizing the relation between accounting data and the underlying economic events that generated them. The course focuses on how to record economic events in the accounting records (i.e., accrual accounting) and how to prepare and interpret the primary financial statements that summarize a firm's economic transactions (i.e., the balance sheet and the income statement).
