    The “Basics of Accounting“ course has two parts. Firstly, an introduction to double-entry bookkeeping: after looking at the legal basis, the course then shows how financial accounting is structured and carried out, using an industrial company as an example. Secondly, the course focuses not only on the practical purposes of financial reporting and managerial accounting, but also on providing students with a basic knowledge which enables them to deal with both practical and theoretical issues related to accounting. This basic knowledge comprises not only measures and instruments of cost accounting, but also the basics of accounting. After completing the “Basics of Accounting“ course, students are able to interpret and depict processes and facts in both managerial accounting and financial reporting. This includes transforming business transactions into accounting records and subsequently integrating them into the financial accounting system in order to be able to make statements at the end of every business year on the company’s financial situation and on the situation regarding its assets and profits. Students are also able to analyze balance sheets with the aid of appropriate KPIs. As regards managerial accounting, they have a solid knowledge of systems relating to cost accounting (cost type accounting, cost centre accounting and cost unit accounting) and can interpret results from a business administration point of view. Also, students are able to ask critical questions about, and discuss, individual aspects of accounting.
