BUSI 108: Management Accounting

Offered Fall semester 2015 (August 18-december 11)

The course provides an introduction to management accounting, a field of business that develops the financial and nonfinancial information necessary to effectively manage the organization. Management accounting is a field in transition, moving from a procedural focus on stewardship accounting to a strategic focus on the use of accounting to facilitate the business success of the enterprise for manufacturing or service firms. Also, the concepts of management accounting are increasingly applied to government and not-for-profit organizations, to help them succeed in their service missions to be responsible to the citizens and funding agencies.

A principal motivation for the change in management accounting is the changes in business processes and organizations in response to increased competition, both global and domestic. These changes include a renewed focus on the customer, aggressive cost reduction, outsourcing, downsizing and reengineering, total quality management, advanced manufacturing technologies, and increased use of information technologies, among others. The management accountant is a business partner—developing the financial and nonfinancial information that the organization needs to be successful.
