ACC 1110 – Introductory Managerial Accounting
Section A03 Tuesday and Thursday 1:00 PM – 2:15 PM
Instructor: Alexandra McMullen CPA, CA Office: 357 Drake Centre Office Hours: Thursdays 11:15 – 12:45 or by appointment E-mail: [email protected]
COURSE OBJECTIVES This first course in managerial accounting introduces students to the use of accounting information for internal management decision-making. The internal user focus is a notable contrast to the emphasis in financial accounting of reporting the results of a company’s operations to external users. The course is designed from the perspective of the general manager, and its primary purpose is to develop the ability to use rather than to prepare accounting information. Specifically, this course should help you to
• understand how basic cost concepts are applied to develop costing systems that will determine the cost of a company’s products or services. Accurate cost data is an essential prerequisite for proper managerial decision-making.
• understand and apply management accounting concepts and techniques in order to make wise choices between competing alternatives. This requires the ability to extract relevant information from accounting records, reports or statements, and to properly use this information.
• understand basic concepts of management control systems and utilize these concepts in evaluating the performance of managers, products, or economic units.
The course will also address the following learning goals:
• Ethics: students will be exposed to ethical situations in assigned homework questions and classroom discussions
• Communications: students will be encouraged to participate in classroom discussions and will be evaluated on written communication on examination papers.
• Quantitative methods: students will develop skills in basic quantitative analyses in assignment homework questions and classroom activities
• Critical thinking: students will be expected to determine which decision analyses are required in various situations, the underlying assumptions and limitations of the analyses, and what additional information should be considered.

Course / Tutorial Lab Attendance to the course lab is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED, but attendance is not mandatory. Attendance may be taken in the lab for purposes of evaluating the usefulness of labs, but will not affect your grade in the course. End of Chapter Questions The Connect assignments are NOT sufficient preparation for this course. This course outline also includes a list of suggested chapter questions that should to be done at the end of each chapter or will be discussed in class as time permits. These questions are designed to allow students to review lecture material and to practice applying knowledge of each subject area. Students may benefit from working on questions with a study partner or in a small group. This will help ensure completeness of your individual responses. Questions will not be handed in for grading. It is each student’s responsibility to check their own responses against solutions in detail and to identify areas where improvement is necessary. Any persistent difficulties should be discussed with the instructor during office hours or by email.
ABC and Master Budget Group Assignments Both assignments are to be done in groups of 4 people and prepared using an Excel Workbook in size 11 of Calibri font. Save your final work before submitting electronically using the Dropbox function on UMLearn course website by 4:00 PM.

For both assignments, 40% to 50% of the grade will be based on completion of all parts, and the rest based on having certain check figures correct.

Examinations Students are allowed to bring one 8.5 x 11 inch sheet, handwritten on both sides, into the midterm and the final examination. Write your name and the last four digits of U of M student ID on the upper right hand corner of the sheet. It is necessary to submit this sheet with the examination. Cell phones are not permitted. You must bring your student ID card to the exam.
In all cases of absence the instructor should be advised with 7 calendar days of the examination date and receive suitable documentation. Students who miss the mid-term examination for legitimate reasons (medical compassionate, or university sports team travel) and provide suitable documentation in time will have the weight of midterm exam put on the final exam. Note that a conflict with employment is not an excused absence considered by the University. Students who miss the final examination must apply to the Undergraduate Program Office, Room 268 Drake, for possible deferred examination privileges. Course Conduct Students are expected to complete the text reading and review assigned homework problems prior to class. You should bring your textbook to class with you so you can see the question in front of you: generally, most students are not able to see the question on the projector screens well. Students are expected to behave in a courteous and professional manner in all dealings with both their fellow students and the professor both in and outside of class. Students who exhibit behaviours that detract from the quality of the class (e.g., regularly arriving late or leaving early, talking to classmates during class, answering cell phones, obviously reading material unrelated to the class, listening to ipods) may be asked to correct their behaviour, move to another seat, or be asked to leave the classroom.

Fall 2015 ACC 1110 A03 Course Outline Page 8 of 9 ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
It is critical to the reputation of the I.H. Asper School of Business and of our degrees that everyone associated with our faculty behaves with the highest academic integrity. As the faculty that helps create business and government leaders, we have a special obligation to ensure that our ethical standards are beyond reproach. Any dishonesty in our academic transactions violates this trust. The University of Manitoba Undergraduate Calendar addresses the issue of academic dishonesty under the heading “Plagiarism and Cheating.” Specifically, acts of academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to:
• using the exact words of a published or unpublished author without quotation marks and without referencing the source of these words
• duplicating a table, graph or diagram, in whole or in part, without referencing the source • paraphrasing the conceptual framework, research design, interpretation, or any other ideas of another
person, whether written or verbal (e.g., personal communications, ideas from a verbal presentation) without referencing the source
• copying the answers of another student in any test, examination, or take-home assignment • providing answers to another student in any test, examination, or take-home assignment • taking any unauthorized materials into an examination or term test (crib notes) • impersonating another student or allowing another person to impersonate oneself for the purpose of
submitting academic work or writing any test or examination • stealing or mutilating library materials • accessing tests prior to the time and date of the sitting • changing name or answer(s) on a test after that test has been graded and returned • submitting the same paper or portions thereof for more than one assignment, without discussions with the
Group Projects and Group Work
Many courses in the I.H. Asper School of Business require group projects. Students should be aware that group projects are subject to the same rules regarding academic dishonesty. Because of the unique nature of group projects, all group members should exercise special care to insure that the group project does not violate the policy on Academic Integrity. Should a violation occur, group members are jointly accountable unless the violation can be attributed to a specific individual(s).
Some courses, while not requiring group projects, encourage students to work together in groups (or at least do not prohibit it) before submitting individual assignments. Students are encouraged to discuss this issue as it relates to academic integrity with their instructor to avoid violating this policy.
In the I.H. Asper School of Business, all suspected cases of academic dishonesty are passed to the Dean’s office in order to ensure consistency of treatment.
