À propos du cours

This course is the first course in a five-course Financial Reporting Specialization that covers the collection, processing, and communication of accounting information (via financial reports) about economic entities to interested parties (i.e., managers and external stakeholders such as stockholders and creditors). To gain the most relevant knowledge from these courses, learners should have taken a basic accounting course prior to this Specialization (which can be done through Coursera courses, such as any accounting course from the Fundamentals of Accounting Specialization: This Specialization focuses on accounting concepts, principles and theory with an emphasis on problems that arise in applying these concepts for external reporting purposes. Specific emphasis is placed on measurement of assets, liabilities, equities and income, as well as disclosure of additional information that may assist users understand the financial reports. After a brief introduction to the course, we will spend time understanding the overall financial accounting structure and standards as well as review the fundamental accounting process used to prepare the financial statements, which will establish a framework for the study of the concepts in the remaining courses in the Financial Reporting Specialization. In this course, we will begin our review of key information included in the Balance Sheet and Income Statement and their related financial disclosures. The Statement of Cash Flows will be introduced briefly with more discussion to follow in later courses of the Specialization. Also, we will provide a cursory review of key concepts involving time value of money as we will finish this course with focus on revenue recognition, including discussion of the new revenue standard. We will review the general approach for recognizing revenue, special issues affecting revenue recognition including long-term construction contracts. In addition, we will discuss and review common ratios used in profitability analysis.

Overall great. One issue was that the meaning of shortcuts where not on the slides and therefore searching in the videos was necessary. Another way for inprovement would be a reference on each slide or beginning of a slidedeck regarding a topic where to find this in the topic in the additional literature/book provided.

Good intro course to accounting. I had done a BBA with a few accounting classes and I found it to be easy so even someone with half the prerequisite knowledge would be able to find their way just fine. The instructor was good too!

T​he learning experience was great. It was such a refresher course for me but I still learned a lot from Prof. Davis. I appreaciate the modules and how the whole course run through. It was very easy to understand even though it was full packed of lessons. Prof. Davis also gave clear explanation to everything specially to all the computations we need to do in accounting. Truly, it was such an amazing learning experience.

The course is really fruitful. It provided me the information of financial system in the USA. Various topics such as, GAAP, revenue recognition, ration analysis, etc. helped me to refresh my mind and review with the subject I have learned before during my college days. The presentation style and lecture of the lecturer was simple and easy to understand.
