teach the class but because one of the most important uses of accounting information is to help managers and business professionals make day to day internal business decisions We will be learning how to use accounting information for internal decision making all semester long That makes this class incredibly relevant for anyone who expects to work for an organization where money comes in as revenue or donations and money is spent 1 Student Learning Outcomes At the end of this course I hope you will have a foundational knowledge of managerial accounting improved critical thinking skills
