Course Details

Accounting and Financial Analysis for non-Accountants is managerially oriented and focuses key aspects of accounting. It teaches students how to post, read, analyze and interpret financial accounting data to make informed business decisions. Case studies and issues will be solved using excel applications in the computer lab.
This course aims to give non-accountants an overview of what occurs in the accounting department from posting of entries to analysis of financial data to computing a unit cost of one item to how the public accountants, i.e. auditors and internal auditors work. At the end of this course, students should have a strong understanding on how the accounting world operates.
Towards the end of the course we will look at contemporary issues. Key changes in accounting standards that are on-stream in International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS); in particular IFRS 9 (impairment), IFRS 15 (income recognition) and IFRS 16 (leases) and how they are changing the industry will be covered. Another is a trend towards more subjective narrative analysis in the financial reports.
