The objective of the course is to help you become intelligent readers of financial statements: the balance sheet, income statement, statement of retained earnings and cash flow statement. Achievement of this goal requires an understanding of the basic principles that underlie accrual accounting, as well as an appreciation of the amount of judgment required in applying these principles. I will refer to current events that show the impact of accounting in the business world. A solid understanding of accounting is one of the basic building blocks of business education. Course Requirements:  Attendance and class participation are expected and will make the class more interesting.  Assigned readings and homework assignments should be completed prior to the relevant class session and selected problems will serve as a vehicle for class review  Homework assignments will not be collected unless specifically noted ahead of time, however, assignments will represent the material you should understand for quizzes and exams. It is critical that you complete the assignments in order to learn the material.  There will be some periodic, short quizzes covering previously covered material. Quizzes will be announced in advance and will last approximately 10 minutes. Make-ups are not permitted but the lowest quiz score will be dropped.  Please check Blackboard regularly for announcements and postings.
