Prerequisite: MA 701 or MA 713
Evaluates traditional cost accounting tools and demonstrates how these tools can be modified to meet the economic challenges of the new millennium. Issues of management control and corporate governance are given special consideration. In addition we will integrate behavioral, ethical, and international issues into the course. For example, when discussing performance evaluation, traditional financial measures may lead to earnings management. A case approach will be extensively used.
