The Conceptual Framework and FASB’s Future Agenda

October 23, 2017 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

About the Program/Learning Objective

Join the Stan Ross Department of Accountancy as we welcome Christine Ann Botosan, Board Member, Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) for the Emanuel Saxe Distinguished Lecture in Accounting. The objective of the conceptual framework project is to develop an improved conceptual framework that provides a sound foundation for developing future accounting standards. Such a framework is essential to fulfilling the Board’s goal of developing standards that are principles based, internally consistent, and that lead to financial reporting that provides the information capital providers need to make decisions in their capacity as capital providers. Dr. Botosan will share her views on current status and proposed modifications to existing framework.

Baruch College thanks Grant Thornton LLP for their generous support of the Saxe Lectures.
