From the Instructor:
Whereas BA 211 and 212 (Financial Accounting) deal with the preparation of accounting data for use by those generally outside of a company (investors, creditors, etc.), BA 213 (Managerial Accounting) is geared toward the preparation of accounting and other data that is used generally by those inside of a company (owners, managers, employees, etc.). Where Financial Accounting focuses on GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles), Managerial Accounting is free from the restrictions of GAAP and provides for more creative information reporting. Rather than processing daily transactions, the managerial accountant goes behind the scenes to analyze and report on various company processes such as standard costing, variance analysis, job-order and process costing, just to name a few. This class will challenge your ability to think abstractly and to work within a less structured framework in terms of your business knowledge.
Course Specific Requirements:
BA 211, Financial Accounting I is a prerequisite for this class. You should also have enough math education to know basic algebra. We use algebra to understand some of the equations used. And, the use of algebra can simplify your learning the equations you will use in practice. This class will utilize McGraw-Hill Connect as its homework manager. This is the same tool used in BA 211 and 212. When you purchase a new textbook, you are also purchasing access to Connect. If you have already used Connect, your purchase will extend your access to the tool for the term of the class.
