Contemporary Cases in Financial Accounting

ACCT 327
New York City, NY
Prof: Afshad Irani

The objective of this course is two fold.  First, to understand the financial accounting standard setting process and the roles different institutions play in that process.  In this regard, we will be visiting standard setting bodies such as the FASB and PCAOB.  Second, to use the financial accounting standards (Codification) along with what you learned in the Intermediate Accounting classes to research solutions to real world cases.
