This course teaches financial and managerial accounting concepts from a management perspective. It is designed to be useful particularly for those who aspire to be managers, management consultants, financial specialists (e.g., controller, financial analyst, auditor), or human resource specialists (e.g., personnel director, compensation consultant). The course highlights the reporting differences among industries, including manufacturing, retailing, and service firms, and regulated and non-regulated firms.
