Course Details

This course is intended for students who have studied and passed the Introductory Financial Accounting INTENSIVE (BFA102) course or have an equivalent basic financial accounting knowledge. Whilst the "Financial Accounting Intensive" course focused primarily on the basis of financial accounting and the preparation of financial statements, the emphasis in Intermediate Financial Accounting is analyzing - rather than recording - financial information for decision making; to understand why certain transactions are treated in a particular manner.

Students will master the technical skills needed to analyze financial statements and disclosures and learn how accounting standards and managerial incentives affect the financial reporting process. This course will cover the relationship between accounting cycles and financial standards.

Sustainability Reporting and a brief introduction to digital currencies such as Bitcoin and other Blockchain technologies will be covered later on in the course as well as other current issues in financial accounting.
