Here is the class outline:

1. The Accounting Environment.

As businesses constantly execute financial transactions including sales, purchase, payments etc. students will learn to book those transactions in the course of the account systems. The accumulation of all transactions is recorded in the annual financial statements. Those provide an overview of the financial condition of an enterprise. All information regarding the business is presented in a structured manner. To filter the required internal and external accounting information from the report, managers and investors must be capable of reading and interpreting financial statements. Students will therefore learn to read annual financial statements and understand them in detail. The first part of the course comprises the fundamentals of financial accounting as part of the organisational bookkeeping and annual reporting. The course will continue with the system of accounting transactions and annual statements. Within the scope of double-entry bookkeeping students will learn to execute accounting transactions on their own. In the fourth part students will organise transactions in standard forms of accounting on their own. The course closes with a comprehensive view as a basis for closing accounts. Foundations of Accounting: Managers and investors require internal and external accounting information for business and investment decisions.
