BUAD 5107 - Accounting


(4)

This course introduces students to the roles that accounting systems play in organizations and in global capital markets. Accounting is often called “the language of business,” which emphasizes the prominent position it has in business communications and decision making. Reports derived from accounting systems are often the primary way information within organizations, and from organizations to various stakeholders, is communicated. Such information is essential input for, and serves a fundamental basis for, managerial and stakeholder decisions. By the end of this course, students should know the fundamentals of this language so that they can communicate effectively about important business matters.
