Description: The course provides an introduction to accounting systems that managers use to support decision making and to align behaviors. The objective of cost management systems is to provide information about costs; including, but not limited to costs of products and services. While financial accounting requires that product cost information be accumulated in particular ways for external reporting, these approaches often provide inadequate information for managing the firm. Management accounting is distinct from financial accounting in its focus on internal (to the firm) uses of accounting and nonfinancial data and in the relative absence of external rules-making bodies such as the SEC or FASB and external monitors such as public accounting firms.
