Course Details

Financial Accounting establishes a foundation in accounting concepts and principles upon which the appropriate recognition, measurement, and presentation of a wide variety of routine, and non-routine transactions, are evaluated. Students are provided with the knowledge to prepare financial statements for proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations, in accordance with the appropriate standard (IFRS or ASPE), and interpret the results. Once a thorough understanding of these topics has been established, the treatment of more complex topics will be explored in depth.
