Accounting Theory and Practice (3101AFE)

Accounting students, having been exposed to the methodology and practice of accounting, need to understand the broader implications of financial accounting to the fair and efficient working of capital markets and of the economy. In this course we overturn perceptions students may have of accounting as a purely technical subject, teaching instead the reality of accounting as an evolving process in which vested interests must be understood, different points of view accommodated, and uncertainty dealt with. Using theories of accounting and academic research, we critically evaluate contemporary media debate on accounting issues and the profession. In later weeks, we teach accounting methods and rationale for several more complex areas of accounting. This course is offered: Gold Coast: Trimester 1 Day Trimester 2 Night Logan: Trimester 3 Day (even years) Night (odd years) Nathan: Trimester 1 Night Trimester 2 -Day Note: This course has a prerequisite Prerequisites: 2102AFE, 2108AFE or 2182AFE Financial Accounting Prior or concurrent enrolment in 2103AFE/2183AFE Company Accounting is advised.
