AC 611 Keating Fall 2010 Syllabus, Page #2 COURSE DESCRIPTION: The Graduate School bulletin describes AC 611 as a course that "deals with the measurement and reporting problems of various asset and liability accounts, revenues and expenses, and the preparation and interpretation of financial statements at the intermediate financial accounting level. Pronouncements of the AICPA, FASB and other authoritative sources are used in instruction". COURSE OBJECTIVE: This course will examine in detail the accounting theory and concepts which form background for the external financial reporting. It also examines the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) related to the preparation of financial statements, with particular emphasis on asset valuations, and their relationship to income determination. The students will be given an opportunity to expand their understanding of accounting theory, and evaluate the impact of alternative accounting procedures on financial statements. The course aims to (i) develop the students' ability to solve professional-level problems, (ii) expose them to the complexities and nuances of dealing with real world situations in an uncertain environment, and (iii) develop their communication skills. COURSE WEBSITE: Please visit the Blackboard site for this course regularly for announcements, course information, class documents, and more. You can log in to Blackboard from any location, at any time at http://blackboard.bentley.edu . HYBRID COURSE INFORMATION (FOR THURSDAY EVENING SECTIONS ONLY):
