BAAC 505 Fundamentals in Accounting

Managers need to understand the information contained in the financial statements, and to understand how others are viewing and assessing their actions. The reporting of financial statement information leads to economic consequences to a business and its management. Managers need to be aware of these consequences and be able to anticipate them when making business decisions. This course in the MBA program will assist students in understanding how to use financial information contained in financial statements to make better decisions. It will also explore several management accounting topics that focus on management decision-making using available financial data. Although the class requires you to learn some basic accounting mechanics, the emphasis of the class is on understanding how financial information can be used to answer practical business questions.
