Management Accounting and Control
Course SummaryThis course is an introduction to the use of accounting information by managers for decision making, performance evaluation and control. The course should be useful for those who intend to work as management consultants, for LFM (Leaders for Manufacturing) students, and in general, for those who will become senior managers.
The goal is to provide students with a conceptual framework for identifying and resolving accounting issues faced by managers. We will have lectures on topics, followed by case discussions to illustrate and reinforce concepts. Students will be expected to have read and prepped, within groups, the assigned case prior to class. The textbook should be used to pick up the conceptual tools to prep for each case.
