Syllabus:

This course builds on material covered in Management Accounting (ACCTING 2500) and examines many of the current issues in management accounting. One of the primary objectives of this course is to develop students’ analytical and problem-solving skills by using several case studies. It is assumed in this course that students have an appreciation and good understanding of the basic cost accounting concepts and techniques. Since the early 1990s, management accounting has been in the process of continual change. While some firms still use traditional methods of management accounting such as costing, performance measurement and cost analysis, an increasing number of firms are using innovative management accounting techniques such as activity-based costing, strategically oriented performance measurement systems and strategic cost analysis. This course deals with many of the present-day management accounting techniques. Moreover, it also considers the skills and competencies that management accountants should develop in order to take advantage of the many opportunities offered by the new management accounting techniques.
