The aim of the Accounting Theory course is to examine various theories that have been put forward to understand the role of financial accounting in decision-making, and to explain why and how entities make decisions concerning disclosure of financial information in the absence of complete regulation. This course is designed to enable you to apply your academic learning to a contemporary workplace situation.
The integration of work-based learning and academic learning, commonly referred to as Work Integrated Learning (WIL), will allow you to solve authentic business problems or address real issues faced in organisations. The emphasis in the course will be on the current theories, which explain contemporary financial accounting practice. This includes both normative and positive theories. The course also examines a number of contemporary accounting issues in the context of the theories studied in the course. Accounting Theory is a compulsory core unit in the Bachelor of Business (Accountancy) degree.
