Learning Financial Accounting can often feel like learning a foreign language to students. Before students even grasp the underlying concepts of Accounting, they are immersed in unfamiliar terms. Before students fully realize the purpose of financial statements, they are asked to make detailed recording procedures. This early emphasis on terminology and recording can be a struggle for non-accounting majors to see the relevancy, leading to increased dropouts and higher failure rates. This creates a challenge for Financial Accounting instructors, who must balance the need to engage and retain non-majors while thoroughly preparing Accounting majors for the next level.
The authors of Introductory Financial Accounting for Business, 2nd Edition (PDF), offer a solution emphasizing an analytical approach to Accounting – teaching students to think like business professionals and speak regarding bottom-line consequences: How will a given transaction impact my overall business? How can I make better business decisions whether I’m an accountant, manager, or entrepreneur? Business leaders demand that new graduates have these critical thinking skills to handle a rapidly changing modern business environment. Today’s college students will encounter new technological advances in automated data capture, data analytics, and artificial intelligence – processes that automate traditional recording procedures. Rather than tallying transactions, accounting students must analyze and interpret data, making decisions early and often and thinking like business professionals. The Edmonds/Olds team’s fresh approach and modern pedagogy helps prepare students for their business careers.
