Financial Management Course

International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

With an applied emphasis, this course provides a solid foundation for professional requirements and transition to the workplace. The conceptual basis upon which assets, liabilities, equity, revenue and expenses are defined is discussed. The end user financial information needs upon which International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE) are based are identified. Building on introductory courses, the financial reporting model comprising measurements, statement presentations and related disclosures are explored on an area basis; current and non-current assets and related valuations, current liabilities, critical revenue and expense recognition criteria. The applied emphasis blends process (derivation and enabling entries) with end product financial statement presentation. Note: Full-time Accounting and Finance students applying for transfer credit for this course from other post-secondary institutes must have achieved a minimum grade of 65% or better.
