    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches a broader view of accounting processes with concerns to government and non-profit accounting. It shows the major differences in how revenue and expenses are accounted for between profit and non-profit accounting companies and government entities.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the characteristics that distinguish governments and not-for-profit organizations from businesses and the accounting and reporting implications of these characteristics. I also gained an understanding of the importance of governmental budgeting and control as well as the need for more than one type of budget, various ways of classifying expenditures and benefit of performance budgets.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to keep what they understand about for profit accounting and table it. The rules change with concerns to how accounting information is seen and by who receives specific accounting statements. Keep an open mind. Research governmental accounting rules. GAAP is not the final ruling, the judicial court is the final ruling on accounting information.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It expands the knowledge from accounting for private companies; and give adequate knowledge for those passionate about working in accounting for government agencies and not for ptofit organization..

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was fund accounting. I learnt that government prepare two types of statements in order to provide information for the different users. The fund financial statements which are prepared on a modified accrual basis and separate the funds to highlight the major governmental funds; and the government-wide statement which is prepared on a full accrual basis and views the government as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to prepare a set schedule. The course would have been completely easy has I dedicate enough time and effort. I was working two jobs which took away a bit of my focus. The main thing to maintain success is time management.
