Accounting is a multidisciplinary field. Regardless of a student’s career plans, a certain body of professional accounting
knowledge is necessary to become a professional who is capable of making informed and rational decision. The knowledge
acquired in this course should help students to analyze accounting problems and to apply the knowledge to find solutions to real life
business problems. The aim of this course is to provide an in-depth knowledge on managerial accounting principles and practices
so that managerial decision can be taken independently.
(1) Managerial Accounting – Garrison and Noreen, 10 Edition.

There will be one mid-term exam at the middle of the semester. You can expect short and/or multiple-choice questions
including theory and quantitative problems in the mid term exam.
Individual Assignments and Quizzes
There will be a number of unannounced quizzes during the entire semester and the marks of all quizzes will be considered
for grading purpose. There will be no make up exam for any missing quiz and assignment. Please note that all individual
assignments are take home nature and due for submission in one-week time.
Class Participation (Bonus Marks)
I expect active class participation from all students. Attendance at class will be taken with less weight. You will be
treated as an adult in this regard; responsible for the outcomes of the choices you make. Absences will impact your class
participation grade; if you're not in class, you can't participate.
Group Presentation and Group Report
There will be a group presentation during the mid-term session. A group report will be prepared and presented by a
group of 2 - 3 students during the final session. The group will be formed at the beginning of first week on a random basis. The
detail guidelines and structure about the presentation and report will be announced in due time.
There will be a comprehensive Final exam at the end of the semester. Final exam will include all chapters to be covered
after mid-term session and two chapters from mid-term session. You can expect both short (T/F and MCQ) and essay type
questions including theory and quantitative problems in the final exam. The detail will be announced in due time.
No make-up exam will be given without prior arrangement with the instructor. Any missed exam / paper will earn zero
point. Academic dishonesty, such as cheating on the exam, copying another student’s exam / paper or letting another student copy
your exam / paper may result in your receiving an “F” grade in the course.
