This course continues from the CACC 414 coverage of the financial reporting requirements as presented in generally accepted accounting principles. The topics will include liabilities, share capital transactions, earnings per share calculations, adjustments, correction of errors, income taxes, leases, pensions and financial statement analysis. Students should expect to use and expand on the application of generally accepted accounting principles and concepts covered in CACC 414 and introductory financial and management accounting courses. To be successful in the course, students should be prepared to work independently outside the class sessions.
This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
