The objective of the "Financial Reporting and International Accounting" course is to address the fundamental elements of financial communication of companies listed on the capital market.
In principle, all companies listed on the various European markets have been required to apply IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) since 1 January 2005. From this point of view, it is desirable that students in management sciences become familiar with the essential notions of financial reporting, international accounting, and Anglo Saxon accounting practice.
Much of the course material is prepared by major audit firms, professional and academic associations (AAA, IASB, and FASB) and financial market regulators (European Commission, SEC, etc.). The reading of these documents offers an opportunity to students interested in the financial market, reporting and international accounting, especially in activities such as auditing, consulting, financial analyst, bank manager, etc. Exercises and practical cases in each subject will be presented.
