PRESCRIBED TEXT FOR ACCT6002 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY, SEMESTER 2 2013
Make informed decisions in today's dynamic international business environments
International accounting has never been so exciting. Not only is the pace of international business, finance, and investment rapidly increasing, but we are also moving closer than ever before toward a convergence of accounting standards worldwide.
Updated and revised to keep pace with these changes, this Sixth Edition of Radebaugh, Gray, and Black's International Accounting and Multinational Enterprises focuses on international business strategies and how accounting applies to these strategies. You'll learn how to use financial and accounting information across borders, and make more informed decisions in an increasingly complex international business environment. The authors also explain the key factors, including cultural differences, that influence accounting standards and practices in different countries, and how those factors impact the harmonization of standards worldwide.
New to This Edition:
* New coauthor, Ervin L. Black of Brigham Young University.
* Updated coverage on corporate governance, Sarbanes-Oxley, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), and how these forces affect U.S.-based multinationals, as well as companies in other countries.
