Section Description: BSAD366 deals with advanced financial reporting concepts: consolidated financial statements, multinational reporting, segment reporting, and interim reporting. Although US GAAP is emphasized, IFRS differences, where significant, are discussed as this material is important to students sitting for the CPA exam and students going to work for international accounting firms. You will find the material in this course is quite procedural/technical in nature, requiring a great deal of practice. In addition, this course places a strong emphasis on developing your critical thinking, accounting research, and professional communication skills.
