Course objectives

The course aims at analyzing IFRSs (International Financial Reporting Standards) i.e. international accounting standards used by many companies all over the world in preparing separate and consolidated financial statements. The knowledge of these standards is fundamental for the students who will be able to understand how IFRSs work, how transactions made by companies are depicted in financial statements and how investors read and interpret financial statements. Therefore, the students will be able to work for preparers, auditors and investors.

Results of learning outcomes
