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, 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.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: ACTY 3110 or consent of the Chair of the Department or the Director of the MBA Program.

Credits 3 hrs.

Open to Graduate Students Only. Enrollment in HCOB graduate business courses requires admission to the MBA or MSA program or the consent of the Director of Graduate Business Programs
