ACT 650: Accounting For Decision Making

Interpretation of corporate financial reporting by external users of financial statements. Students examine the form and content of financial statements and the methods used to account for assets, liabilities, capital, cash flows and other information reported in conformity with accounting principles. While pure financial accounting focuses on the external interpretation of corporate financial reporting, this course includes internal reporting for managerial decision-making. Management planning and control techniques, basic cost analysis, capital budgeting and activity-based management are encompassed in the course.
