  • Overview

    Rationale and Purpose of the Module: The aim of this module is to develop a student’s understanding of the theoretical framework of accounting. It introduces the student to the translation of accounting theory, concepts and principles into accounting regulation and practice. It encourages the student to evaluate selected international accounting standards.

    Syllabus: The module will consider the theory and practice of selected international accounting standards and issues. Focus will be on the preparation and reporting to external users of financial information, especially, but not exclusively, equity investors. The accounting standards and issues are examined in light of their historical development and discussions will not be solely around the actual content but what the regulations ought to be or might be.
