Accounting Fundamentals

Spring 2019

Taught By: Carol Overby

Section: A

CRN: 4681

Credits: 3

In this course, students learn the language of accounting, enabling them to keep the accounts of a small business, understand internal management reports, and evaluate financial statements. Besides a traditional accounting textbook, the class will make use of The Accounting Game, a right-brain approach to this left-brain skill. Through readings and discussion, the class explores such topics as: How is the language of accounting used to inform as well as to mislead? What decisions does the accountant make, and what motivates those decisions? Are maximizing profit and accumulating wealth the only valid reasons to be in business?
