ACCT 2120 Accounting Information for Decision Making

3 semester hours

This course involves study of managerial accounting, in which economic information (both qualitative and quantitative) is used to make strategic business decisions. This course is the second of two introductory accounting courses (business core prerequisite: ACCT 2110 Financial Accounting ) required for all business majors and as a prerequisite to all other accounting courses. Managerial accounting information is used to make decisions that guide the organization through planning, organizing, directing, and controlling activities. Strategic decision making requires a future orientation to the information, with relevant and flexible data. This course draws heavily from economics, finance, management, and marketing.

Prerequisites: ACCT 2110 BADM 1030 ; MATH 112  or MATH 131 , all with a minimum grade of C (2.0).
