ACC 510 - Accounting Research and Analysis


This course will apply accounting research tools and current accounting issues in multiple organizations ranging from “for-profit” and “not-for-profit” enterprises to “international” conglomerates.

Other topics will include research of accounting questions related to assets, leases, derivative instruments, debt, contingencies, segment reporting, pensions, business combinations, consolidations, stockholder’s equity, fund balance, and tax-related research. The impact of change from GAAP to IFRS as related to important accounting issues will also be covered. Research will be customized to various sizes and types of organizations ranging from the LLC level to applicable issues for complex international conglomerates.
