Description

Students will develop an understanding of the structure and functions of general purpose financial reports from a reader's perspective. They will be introduced to current non-financial reporting issues such as the challenge of sustainability within business and society. Students will gain an introductory understanding of management accounting and business finance.

Besides being a core course in the Bachelor of Commerce, ACCT102 has special significance for students majoring in Accounting or Taxation and Accounting: it is the pre-requisite course for ACCT103. It is therefore vital that if you are doing either of these two majors you study ACCT102 in your first semester at university, with a view to enrolling in ACCT103 in your second semester. That way, in your third semester, you will be eligible to enrol in 200-level accounting, taxation and information systems courses forming part of your degree for which ACCT103 is a pre-requisite course. If you recently studied accounting successfully at high school or you have had significant administrative work experience (say 12 months or more) involving accounts and records, then you may want to see the Student Advisors about the possibility of studying ACCT102 and ACCT103 at the same time.
