This course is the first course in a five-course Financial Reporting Specialization that covers the collection, processing, and communication of accounting information (via financial reports) about economic entities to interested parties (i.e., managers and external stakeholders such as stockholders and creditors). To gain the most relevant knowledge from these courses, learners should have taken a basic accounting course prior to this Specialization (which can be done through Coursera courses, such as any accounting course from the Fundamentals of Accounting Specialization: https://www.coursera.org/specializations/accounting-fundamentals). This Specialization focuses on accounting concepts, principles and theory with an emphasis on problems that arise in applying these concepts for external reporting purposes. Specific emphasis is placed on measurement of assets, liabilities, equities and income, as well as disclosure of additional information that may assist users understand the financial reports.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ACCOUNTING ANALYSIS I: THE ROLE OF ACCOUNTING AS AN INFORMATION SYSTEM
I do wish that there were more example problems in the videos. So that when I get to the knowledge check, the instructor has already walked through how to calculate the answer.
I really like this course. It is approachable to people who have no accounting knowledge and is very structure.
The course was very well taught and very explanatory. Mr. Davis is a very good lecturer.
An amazing course for getting Ideas about Current and non current assets as well as liabilities. Thank you Sir Gregory L. Davis.
