To obtain partial credit on problems, all supporting calculations must be shown.

In addition, all grades will be posted on the blackboard site. If you note a discrepancy in your grade, please advise me within one week of posting, otherwise the grade will be considered final. Course Objectives: Managerial accounting is concerned with the design and use of accounting information within organizations. During your future professional career you will interact with the accounting systems of many organizations. This course builds on the accounting knowledge learned in financial accounting, and demonstrates the many uses of accounting for a wide range of business. You will learn how organizations use accounting information to price products, plan productions, establish budgets, and generally manage the profitability of the company. Finally, this course will provide you with an understanding of how an accounting system within an organization is both a source of information for making planning decisions as well as part of the control mechanism. 1
