For courses in managerial accounting.
Go beyond managerial accounting theory to the techniques used in management today.
Managerial Accounting: Making Decisions and Motivating Performance enables future managers and business owners to attain the core skills they need to become integral members of their company’s decision-making teams.
This new program from established authors Srikant M. Datar and Madhav Rajan emphasizes decision-making and the implications of decisions. While many texts teach the theories and frameworks of management education, Managerial Accounting goes further by covering the capabilities and techniques necessary for effective management practice, as well as fostering attitudes that typify integrity, honesty, and fairness.
A high-level business case in each chapter illustrates key concepts and helps students place the material in the context of real-world practice. And deep integration with MyAccountingLab provides students numerous opportunities to review and hone their understanding throughout the learning experience.
