  • BCOR 2203 - Principles of Accounting I
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2023
    The course builds a basic understanding of how information regarding a firm's resources and obligations is conveyed to decision makers outside the firm. Students will be exposed to both a user-perspective (how to read and analyze financial accounting reports) and a preparer-perspective (how business transactions affect the financial statements). Particular emphasis will be placed on understanding the accounting cycle, or the system with which businesses process and record their business events to create the financial statements. Credit not granted for this course and BCOR 2000, BCOR 2002.
