Section Description

Intermediate Accounting I reviews the structure of the accounting standards established by the U.S. Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). Although intended primarily for accounting majors, the course also benefits those pursuing a career in corporate finance or the securities industry.

Section Expectation

The course concentrates on the basics of financial accounting and the composition and usefulness of the four basic financial statements. It uses a systems approach to address accounting and reporting issues in the sales cycle (revenue recognition, accounts receivable, including the allowance for doubtful accounts, notes receivable, cash receipts, and accruals), the purchase cycle (inventory, noncurrent assets, accounts payable, cash disbursements, depreciation and impairments); and accounting for investment securities. As such, by the end of the course, you should have a good understanding of most asset accounts, and the accounts commonly included within current liabilities. You will also be able to identify when revenue should be recognized, when various expenses are incurred, and how these activities affect the Statement of Cash Flows. Both U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) developed by the FASB and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) developed by the IASB, will be covered in the course.
