ADMN 115 is an in-depth study of the concepts, principles and practice for external business financial reporting. Consideration of issues related to the measurement and reporting of cash, receivable, inventories, property, plant and equipment, intangibles, investments, revenue and expense recognition and cash flows are discussed.

Recognition and measurement of liabilities (short and long-term), the structure of stockholders' equity, taxes, leases, pensions, and accounting changes and error analysis are also covered in the course. Current generally accepted standards for business reporting are also analyzed, as is their effect of the presentation of financial results by corporations and other entities.
