For undergraduates and MBA students taking a first course in financial accounting.

A clear approach to learning accounting, with an international focus

Financial Accounting: An International Introduction, 7th Edition, by Alexander and Nobes is an essential textbook for undergraduates and MBA students worldwide taking a first course in financial accounting. It is the ideal book for students who have little prior knowledge, or are new to this subject area. The seventh edition retains the clear writing style and unique international focus which led to the success of previous editions. This approach enables the teaching of financial accounting in a way that is not country-specific. This fully updated text uses the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as its framework to explain key concepts and practices while linking them with contemporary real-life examples from around the world.
