Levin Building 94 Rockafeller Road, Room 237, Livingston Campus Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Class Time: Monday & Wednesday 8:10 9:30 pm Location: Lucy Stone Hall, Room A142, Livingston Campus Office Hours: Monday and Wednesday: 6:30 7:30 pm, and by appointment Course Description: It is important for business students to understand how businesses make profits and how they can strive towards higher profits. This course will provide an understanding of the relevance of accounting information for managerial decisions. It will examine how the accounting systems of enterprises can aid in formulating business strategies, resource allocation decisions, cost planning and control, and performance measurement. The student will develop a familiarity with managerial/cost terminology to understand and apply various types of cost analyses for higher profits and better decision making in general. Required Materials: Textbook: 1 . Cost Accounting: A Managerial Emphasis, 14 h edition , (Horngren, Datar & Rajan) The first version of this book listed in the Rutgers Universitys bookstore website includes all 23 chapters of this textbook. It costs more than twice as much as the shorter version listed just below it. During our class we will cover the first 11 chapters of this book. Students in our class who are accounting majors will cover the remaining chapters of this textbook (Chapters 12 to 23) in the subsequent accounting course, Cost Accounting 33:010:451 which requires our Introduction to Managerial Accounting course 33:010:275 as a prerequisite. The second custom version of our textbook covered only Chapters 1 through 8 followed by Chapters 10 through 12. It mistakenly was printed without Chapter 9, a chapter we will cover in the later part of our class. Upon discovering this omission my department contacted the books publisher which granted my department copyright permission to photocopy sufficient hard copies of this missing chapter so that everyone who purchased the custom version of this book will be provided with a hard copy of Chapter 9. This hard copy of Chapter 9 will be distributed in class for free to those members of our class who purchased the custom version. 1 On Line Software (required): 2. MyAccountingLab: In addition to the in-class homework assignments, students will be required to complete various homework assignments for credit using MyAccountingLab.
