Prerequisite: ACC 210
Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
The course is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of managerial accounting concepts and a brief overview of corporate income tax concepts. Students will analyze accounting data that are useful in managerial decision making and in the control and evaluation of the decisions made within business organizations. The course will also provide an introduction to basic models, financial statement analysis, cost behavior analysis and cost control procedures.

This is a redesign of ACC 200 which has been the managerial accounting course taught for multiple years.  It was decided to add it as ACC 220 since ACC 210 is a prerequisite, so 220 followed logically from 210 and will lead to less student confusion.  This course will replace ACC 200 (which will no longer be taught), and will focus more purely on managerial accounting rather than including a hybrid of managerial and financial accounting content.
