Course Description

 

Introductory Accounting with the CMA Couch

 

 

 

Financial accounting and reporting are the primary medium by which organizations provide information to their external stakeholders (e.g., shareholders, creditors, governmental agencies, customers and alike). This course presents financial accounting as an essential part of the decision-making process by both the external users and the management. The course involves the study of the foundations of accounting methods and systems, including transaction analysis, the accrual system of accounting, the process of income measurement, and understanding of financial statements. The focus in the course will be on users - and not the preparers - of accounting information. This course assumes no prior accounting knowledge.

The course explains and demonstrate the many financial accounting concepts that would be covered in an introductory financial accounting course. The order of the video...

Instructor Biography

 

 

Dr. John Mclellan, Accounting Professor

 

 

I am a Professor of Accounting with over thirty-five years experience teaching accounting to college students, undergraduate and MBA university students as well as those seeking their professional accounting certifications.   I have been a Certified Management Accountant for thirty-eight years with a Masters of Business Administration degree and a PHD in accounting.   This course is being taught by me to undergraduate business students and graduate students taking this course as a pre-requisite to entering the MBA program. I developed these short videos called "Macnotes" as summaries of important accounting concepts and provide a number of demonstration problems with solutions and quizzes to test your understanding of the concepts. There are sample midterm and final exams which you can complete and send to me for feedback.   If you get an "A" from me I guarantee you will get an "A" from your accounting prof.   -Dr. John
