Upon completing this lab, you will have the ability to: (1) explain how business transactions affect accounting records and systems; (2) prepare basic financial statements; (3) calculate present value and future value amounts; (4) apply time value of money concepts to accounting transactions. The professional skills component of ACCY 301 lab is part of a broader module that occurs across all labs in the accountancy curriculum (ACCY 301, 302, 303, and 304 labs). This module focuses on four primary areas: (1) improving communication skills (written, oral, listening, and visual); (2) building teamwork, interpersonal, and self-management skills; (3) obtaining an understanding of professional responsibilities; and (4) learning more about the accounting field from both industry and public accounting professionals. In ACCY 301 Lab, we specifically focus on area (2) through courses developed by the University’s Illinois Leadership Center.
