The goal is to understand the information contained in the financial statements, including footnotes, to draw conclusions about the reliability of the information, and to evaluate the organization’s future prospects. The course begins with a review of financial statements followed by a detailed analysis of selected topics such as consolidations, capital leases, deferred taxes, pensions, and earnings per share. The perspective throughout the second half of the course is that of a member of the board of directors. Issues in financial statement fraud, corporate governance, and the responsibility for the financial statements are discussed.
