This multimedia Internet course introduces students to basic concepts of management accounting. Students are expected to have completed an introductory financial accounting course, as Introduction to Management Accounting builds upon elementary components, such as financial statements.

In terms of management accounting, operational information is generally regarded as more important than financial accounting information.
