About this Course

This course consists of the following modules.

Intermediate Financial Accounting I and II

In these two modules, we'll explore the role of an accountant in providing financial accounting information to external parties. After a brief review of basic bookkeeping and financial statement preparation, we'll examine the concepts underlying financial accounting. You'll apply these concepts to business scenarios to better understand how, when and why to apply accounting principles. Although the primary emphasis is on U.S. accounting standards (GAAP), substantive differences between GAAP and international accounting standards are identified.

Topics include:

  • The accounting process
  • Financial statements
  • Revenue recognition
  • Accounting for cash, receivables and inventory
  • Accounting for property plant and equipment
  • Investments
  • Assets and depreciation
  • Intangible assets and leases
  • Current liabilities and contingencies
  • Long-term debt
  • Accounting for taxes
