Accounting has often been called "the language of business." This course is designed to help you begin to understand and communicate in this language, something that is important for users of accounting information - not just preparers of it. The course should also help you gain an appreciation for the uses of accounting information and the limitations inherent in accounting information. Successful completion of this course will also give you a solid foundation for additional study and careers in business.
