There is a strong emphasis on manufacturing-specific topics, since these are among the most intense in the field. The basic underlying theme is to build students’ understanding of the three primary internal functions of the corporate managerial accounting team: planning operations, controlling activities, and decision-making. The students will work hands-on with a wide range of concepts utilized in practice to accomplish these functions. The course’s objective is not only that the students will be able to actively and effectively apply the concepts and tools, but also that they will understand and interpret them as well as recognize situations appropriate for their use, and be able to formulate sound business decisions as a result.
