Annual Report Project
To the Student
The Annual Report Project (ARP) provides you the opportunity to analyze a corporate annual report. You will obtain the annual report of a Fortune 500 company from their company website and answer questions regarding the application of concepts studied in your financial accounting course.
The Annual Report Project:
• Will increase your interest in financial accounting by allowing you to personally choose the annual report you will review
• Provides hands-on exposure to financial statements of real-world companies
• Emphasizes the importance of the notes to the financial statements
• Provides an opportunity to examine the application of procedures and methods discussed in your accounting textbook
• Provide you the opportunity to work remotely with the members of your team
The Annual Report Project consists of four assignments and is designed to be a useful supplement for undergraduate financial accounting courses. The following is a list of the topics covered in each Annual Report Project assignment:
