Course Description

ACC 651 Managerial Accounting

This is an advanced accounting course that builds on concepts introduced in Financial Accounting.  A firm grasp of the composition and function of financial statements will be needed to succeed in this class, however, it takes the perspective of a firm’s managers rather than external users or preparers of accounting information.  Therefore, the emphasis is on the strategic importance of accounting information to managerial activity, rather than on accounting procedures and the accounting process.  The course addresses what and how to measure cost and performance drivers that will impact a firm’s competitive strategy.
