The purpose of this course is to provide you, as future managers, with an introduction to and an appreciation of the vast array of tools and techniques that comprise management accounting.
An introduction to the determination, development, and uses of internal accounting information needed by business management to satisfy customers while controlling and containing costs. The course is designed for all business students, whether future users or preparers of accounting information.
