- Learn and apply fundamental accounting principles;
- Prepare financial statements; and
- Perform bookkeeping for sole proprietorships or partnerships.
Accounting is the backbone of business programs at all universities and colleges. Learning it now is easy and will benefit you later, especially if you pursue a commerce degree. In this introductory course, students will learn how to record business transactions and prepare financial statements. Students will also gain computer experience by working with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and Simply Accounting software. For example, students will have the opportunity to reinforce their accounting skills while playing the game, Monopoly, something they especially enjoy.
Financial Accounting 12
- Learn and apply fundamental and advanced corporate accounting principles;
- Analyze and evaluate financial data to solve accounting problems and make business decisions; and
- Construct their own tax returns.
Financial Accounting 12 is intended for students who wish to pursue post-secondary studies in Commerce and for aspiring entrepreneurs. Most of the Financial Accounting content is similar to a university course, so taking it now will really help students later – a fact confirmed by many former Hamber students. We even use a post-secondary level textbook similar to those used at UBC and SFU; but we proceed at a slower, more reasonable pace. Computer applications include work with Simply Accounting and Microsoft Excel.
