About the course

Banks and other financial institutions have unique and sometimes complex transactions that follow special accounting rules not applicable to other companies. Furthermore, the entire industry has been subject to increased regulatory scrutiny in recent years.

This one-day seminar offered via Executive Education, designed for financial executives, managers and others responsible for accounting and reporting by banks and other financial institutions, provides an in-depth update of recent developments impacting the financial services industry as a result of recent standard setter and regulatory activities. Through the use of class exercises and illustrative examples, these developments are not only “presented”, but also “discussed” to emphasize the impact on these unique entities.


The program covers hot topics, issues and trends in accounting and reporting for banks and other financial institutions. Regularly updated throughout the year as new developments occur, sample subject matter includes:

  • Standards generally effective in 2018 including classification of deferred taxes, equity method accounting, share-based payments, contingent options in debt instrument, and novation of derivatives in hedging relationships
  • Financial Instruments
  • Leases
  • Revenue from contracts with customers
  • Other ASUs and FASB projects generally effective in 2019 and beyond
