Managerial Accounting

Course Description

This course provides a set of readings from the textbook, assigned problems, and case discussion questions. The assigned problems illustrate the managerial accounting principles being covered each week; the cases illustrate how these principles are used when addressing a management problem.

Course Objectives

The aim of the course is to transmit a comprehensive, graduate level exploration of managerial accounting. Managers need to understand the ways in which accounting information can be used to guide decision-making. Attention is given to operating leverage decisions, and their impact upon “breakeven” activity levels. This in turn leads to decisions about pricing and production volumes, about “make-or-buy” decisions and about outsourcing. A final module considers the role of accounting data in risk management and in the formulation of corporate strategy.

Learning Goals

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Provide effective cost management tools for projects

  2. Plan, control and manage cost issues

  3. Use budgeting techniques and principles

  4. Implement methods of accountant information evaluation

  5. Implement tools of decision making


Course Description

This course will reunite the disciplines of psychology and economics, which began drifting apart about a century ago. In particular, the course will consider how predictions of economic behavior differ when several assumptions that simplify economic models are replaced with psychologically realistic assumptions based on empirical observations from the lab and from the world.  Special attention will be given to the way in which these modified assumptions affect markets, management, and public policy.

Course Objectives

A review of the development of trade theory from Ricardo to the present leads to a discussion of the extent to which the theory describes the realities of international trade. Various national trade and development models - autarchy, import substitution and local content requirement policies are critiqued. The widespread use of tariffs and of non-tariff trade barriers is explored, and this in turn leads to analysis of the relative lack of success of GATT and of the World Trade Organization, particularly in the area of agricultural restrictions and price supports. The course has a strong research focus, and students are required to prepare a paper and presentation on a current issue in world.

Learning Goals

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

Entrepreneurship and Creativity

Course Description

Entrepreneurship is defined as the assumption of risk and responsibility in designing and implementing a business strategy. The word “entrepreneur” originates from the French word “entreprendre” which means “to undertake”. In the business sense, this means to start a business. An integral part of entrepreneurship is the ability to develop and implement a business strategy.

This course will teach students about the factors leading to the creation of new business ventures and the characteristics of a successful entrepreneur. Students will start up and run their own companies, struggling with business fundamentals and the interplay between marketing, distribution, manufacturing, human resources, finance, and accounting. They will be given control of a simulated business and must manage its operations through several decision cycles. Students must analyze the situation repeatedly, plan a strategy to improve it and then execute that strategy out into the future. They will face great uncertainty from the outside environment and from their own decisions. They will learn to skillfully and incrementally adjust their strategy as they discover the nature of real-life decisions, including the available options, linkages to other parts of the business, conflicts, tradeoffs and potential outcomes.

Course Objectives

The objectives of the course include understanding the strategic process as it applies to a new venture or new company. This includes understanding the role of leadership in the entrepreneurial process and the role of groups and teams in business success or failure.

Quantitative Business Methods

This course is mostly an introduction to the correlational method and to survey and database design. The purpose of correlational research is to determine the relations among two or more variables. Data are gathered from multiple variables and correlational statistical techniques are then applied so that the relations among those variables can be investigated. Correlational research investigates a range of factors, including the nature of the relationship between two or more variables and the theoretical model that might be developed and tested to explain these correlations. Survey research includes methods in which participants are asked questions directly. A representative sample of the target population is typically obtained before data can be collected. The data obtained are either facts, opinions, behaviors (past and present) or intentions. Finally, the data must be properly organized and mined. A special emphasis will be given on the use of computer packages such as Excel or SPSS.
