Courses I Regularly Teach
ACC 231 : Intermediate Accounting I
This course is the first of a two or three course sequence dealing with financial accounting and reporting. Financial reporting is the communication of relevant economic information for decision-makers outside of the firm. Financial accounting is the identification, measurement, and disclosure of a firm’s economic transactions for reporting purposes. As such, financial accounting focuses on the rules by which firms report their results of operating, investing, and financing activities to interested parties.
