Accounting 223 (IDP) Spring 2014
The course, while using traditional accounting techniques and methodology, will focus on the needs of external users of financial information. The emphasis is on learning how to read, interpret and analyze financial information as a tool to guide investment decisions. Concepts rather than procedures are stressed and class time will be largely devoted to problem solutions and case discussions. A basic knowledge of arithmetic and a familiarity with a spreadsheet program is suggested. No more than four credits in accounting may be counted toward the degree.
Professor Ronald Mannino from the UMass Isenberg School of Management will be teaching it on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 2:40-4:00 pm in Seelye Hall 106.
Professor Mannino's office is in Lilly Hall B02B (basement level/use side entrance) and his office hours are MW 4:10-5:00 pm.
