ACC 5160 – Fall 2010 Interview Case Introduction  In this class we will focus on managerial accounting and its role in making an organization or  firm successful.  As a first step, I would like you to find out more about what management  accountants actually do in the real world.  To do so, you will conduct an interview with someone  who is currently working, or has recent experience, in some sort of accounting position within an  organization (not public accounting).  This person may be a parent, sibling, grandparent, uncle,  aunt, cousin, former roommate, friend, current or former employer, or someone you contact and  ask for some time.  As long as the person holds a position in accounting or finance they qualify.  The exception is someone working in public accounting or in an entry level position (since they  would not have a sufficiently broad perspective of the role of the management accounting within  the organization).   Please feel free to check with me if you have any questions about whether  your potential interviewee is an appropriate one! Your interview MUST be conducted no later than September 21 st . Make sure that you read through the  entire  assignment (including the write up section) before  you begin the interview! Conducting the Interview Keep in mind that you are representing Wayne State University as you conduct this interview.  Be polite in asking for time.  The interview should take no more than ½ hour. It is preferable that
