|Duplicate Credit:||Not open to students with credit in ACCT 5100/7100|
|Nontraditional Format:||Additional Requirements for Honors Credit: Because the J.M.
Tull School of Accounting devotes only one three-hour course to
management accounting, it is not possible to cover in our
regular class all of the management accounting topics that may
appear on the CPA exam. Students who plan to sit for the CPA
exam will benefit from studying four additional management
accounting topics that are likely to appear on the CPA exam.
Additional topics tested on exam I are economic order quantity,
joint products, and spoilage. An additional topic tested on
exam II is overhead variances.|

Students learn to prepare and interpret management accounting
information for both operational and strategic decision making.
Specifically, students learn how to determine the costs and
profitability of different products, services, and customers.
Students learn how to use that cost information along with
other cost and revenue data to prepare cost-volume profit
analysis, and to make informed strategic and operational
business decisions, such as identifying relevant revenues
and costs for special short-term decisions, such as accepting
or rejecting one-time only special orders. Students learn how
to use cost information to plan business operations, and to
measure performance of different responsibility centers and
their managers using techniques such as variance analysis.
Students learn to anticipate how management accounting
information affects employees' incentives and behavior, and how
to decide when and where a particular management accounting
tool is likely to be useful.
