Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

The emphasis of Managerial Accounting, 13th edition, is on teaching students to use accounting information to best manage an organization. Consistent with the practice Hilton pioneered in the first edition, each chapter is written around a realistic business or focus company that guides the reader through the topics of that chapter. Known for balanced examples of Service, Retail, Nonprofit and Manufacturing companies, Hilton/Platt offers a clear, engaging writing style that has been praised by instructors and students alike. The 13th edition of Managerial Accounting offers significant coverage of contemporary topics such as activity-based costing, target costing, the value chain, customer profitability analysis, and throughput costing while also including traditional topics such as job-order costing, budgeting and performance evaluation.
