Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

     FundamentalManagerial Accounting Concepts focuses on the development ofdecision-making skills helping students to truly understand managerialaccounting concepts and improving their ability to make sound businessdecisions. The text places a heavy emphasis on service and merchandisingcompanies. For example, the budgeting chapter uses a merchandising business,while most traditional texts use a manufacturing company. Using a servicecompany is not only more relevant, but also simplifies the learningenvironment, thereby making it easier for students to focus on budgetingconcepts rather than procedural details.
     The Edmonds author team alsopromotes a student’s understanding of concepts by isolating and introducing theconcepts individually in decision-making contexts. This allows for students tonot only comprehend the concepts, but also to understand how business conceptsinterrelate, which is a very critical part of seeing the bigger picture inaccounting.
     Utilizing a heavy emphasis ondecision-making and a unique approach to how accounting concepts are introducedwill provide your students the foundational knowledge they need to succeed inthe classroom and beyond!
