- Description of the academic program: The primary goal of the course is to immerse students in the international accounting and European business environment from a physical, cultural, and intellectual perspective with an emphasis on doing business (including from an accounting standpoint) in the United Kingdom, France, and Italy. The study of international accounting issues is crucial for effective interpretation and analysis of financial information from companies located around the world. This course examines diverse financial reporting practices with an emphasis on the underlying cultural, political, institutional, and economic factors. As IFRS is adopted within the United States, a complete understanding of the similarities and differences is critically important. Students will have the opportunity to personally experience the world of European business at the same time they are learning significant facts and concepts in a classroom setting. This will be accomplished by talking to business professionals, hearing lectures by individuals from Europe, visiting major international accounting firms, following the local press, discussing actual business cases, and classroom experiences. In addition, the students will study the differences and similarities of management systems in Western Europe. The course prepares business professionals to recognize the different values and cultural factors that are encountered in the international business community and how these shape and determine appropriate behavior.
