Introduction to Financial Accounting

Amedeo Pugliese, University of Padova

Develop your pre-existing accounting skills and knowledge

On this course, you will discover how the decisions and operations of an organisation are translated into numbers. You will cover fundamental financial accounting concepts to help you develop in your accounting career or prepare yourself for more advanced study.

This course features a range of conceptual and practical activities. You will understand the different purposes of accounting information, the role of accruals, and learn how to read financial statements. You will also address myths of accounting and separate fact from fiction.

The course is designed for those who have already completed an introductory course in financial accounting and need to refresh their understanding. It will suit those looking to take an intermediate or advanced financial accounting course in the future, dealing with business groups, M&A, and consolidation.

Junior professionals (e.g. Chartered Accountants and Certified Financial Accountants) can also familiarise with recent changes in International Financial Reporting Standards.
