This course focuses primarily on financial accounting concepts and methods of analysis applicable to accounting for (1) combined, consolidated financial statements; (2) multinational accounting issues (foreign currency transactions and financial instruments, and translation of foreign entity financial statements); (3) governmental and not-for-profit accounting; and (4) a sampling of other accounting issues to be covered as time allows (such as accounting for partnerships, SEC reporting, and interim and segment reporting).
