Designed for non-accounting majors, this course introduces the basic management accounting concepts to business students. Topics covered provide a good balance between the concepts and procedures used in the accumulation and use of date by management accountants to facilitate planning and decision-making. Cost behaviour and its implications for planning, reporting to management and control is stressed.
This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
