ACTY 6100 - Financial Accounting and Reporting


This course examines the pronouncements of authoritative, regulatory organizations, including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the International Accounting Standards Board, and the Financial Accounting Standards Board. The underlying logic (or lack thereof) behind these pronouncements is investigated. These pronouncements are studies in their broad concepts, including asset and liability recognition and measurement issues, revenue recognition alternatives, the timing of expense matching, and funds flow reporting. Practical, “real world” cases emphasizing these concepts form a major portion of the course. The impact of financial reporting on capital markets, from a user perspective, is also discussed.
