I have updated the LibGuide for Accounting 4100 Summer. There are two sections being taught by Prof. Jian Xiao. This is a communications intensive course. The students are doing research on one of 12 companies that are listed in the guide. All of the companies, except Facebook, are non-U.S.-based public companies that trade their shares on U.S. exchanges as ADRs. The company websites, Edgar Online I-Metrix, Mergent Online, Standard & Poor’s NetAdvantage, Audit Analytics, Factiva and Value Line, are among the suggested resources to help the students prepare their presentations. The students need to discuss the impact of International Financial Reporting Standards on the company’s bottom line, and whether to invest in the company. (Facebook, uses the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, rather than IFRS, and being newly publicly traded hasn’t filed a 10-K.)
The course runs through July. I made a presentation to the two sections yesterday but I also said that they could get help at the reference desk if I were not available.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
