  • Overview

    This course is designed to provide an understanding of the regulatory framework that governs financial reporting practice, a sine qua non for any professional in the discipline of accounting. The course considers the justification for the regulation of accounting practice, the need for ongoing critical review of accounting regulations and consequent changes. The course will expose students to the current state of financial reporting practice and offer explanations as to why regulators have seen fit to establish such practices. Students will be encouraged to demonstrate competency in applying financial reporting practices, and to consider how such practices may continue to evolve.
