The first purpose is generally described as financial accounting, and the second and third as management accounting. This course introduces students to financial and managerial use of accounting information systems and concepts for use by investors outside the firm and managers within the firm. The basic objective is to allow business professionals to read, understand, and use accounting information to make better decisions on the job. The focus of this course is on the use of the information instead of preparing the information. GradingI do not use a grading curve. Thus a student’s performance is measured solely against the standard of the grading scale and not against those around him or her. Grades will be determine based on the below:A category ( - through + ) 90% times total points possibleB category (- through +) 80%C category (- through +) 70%Below 70% would be the D and F 1 Midterm examination (Financial Accounting) 100 points total2 quizzes (50 points each- CAN DROP ONE) 50 pointsPROJECT- GROUP 50 pointsFinal exam (Managerial Accounting) 100 pointsTOTAL POINTS POSSIBLE 300 POINTSCourse Textbook and other materialFinancial Accounting; Libby, Libby, Short; 6th edition ISBN 978-0-07-352688-1; Irwin McGraw-HillManagerial Accounting; Garrison, Noreen and Brewer ; 13th Edition ISBN 978-0-07-337961-6-; Irwin McGraw Hill MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT EDITION.(Available in Spartan bookstore! Ask for Graduate books.GROUP PROJECT: This project involves selecting an annual report of any publicly listed company and analyzing the company as if you were an investor. Confirm your choice of company with me. We will go over this on the first day of classes. A team may also select a report for a hospital or healthcare facility in place of a publicly listed firm as long as an annual report can be obtained. All students should attend each class in order to work within the team to complete assignments and work on the team project. If a student does not participate on a regular basis with his or her team, the student will be asked to leave the team and complete a soloproject. CLASS ETIQUETTE: Students are expected to attend class every day. All assignments scheduled for that day should be completed prior to class. Any student missing class must adviseme and the group in advance (except for an emergency). All students must arrive at class on time. THERE ARE NO MAKEUPS DURING THIS SEMESTER. STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE ALL EXAMS AS SCHEDULED. IT IS CRITICAL THAT STUDENTS COME TO ALL MEETINGS. THE FINAL EXAM WILL BE THURSDAY DECEMBER 10TH. (subject to change) DURING THE CLASS HOUR IF YOU MISS A CLASS BE SURE TO COLLECT ALL HANDOUTS FROM A CLASSMATE. ALSO, IF A STUDENT MISSES MORE THAN TWO CLASSES DURINGTHE SEMESTER THAT STUDENT WILL NEED TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS RATHER THAN WITH A GROUP. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR ALL TEAM MEMBERS TO BE IN CLASS TOGETHER. Academic Standards Students need to begin learning professional behavior before leavingthe University. Professional behavior includes treating classmates and your professors with respect. It also means that you should approach your work in this class as diligently as you would on the job. All work is to be completed on time and prepared professionally. Your work should be complete and error-free. Obviously, all work submitted must be your own. You may neither give nor receive help from any source unless your professor explicitly allows it. Be sure to review the Honor Code for SJSU. Dropping and AddingStudents are responsible for understanding the policies and procedures about add/drops, academic renewal, etc. Information on add/drops are available at http://info.sjsu.edu/web-dbgen/narr/soc-fall/rec-298.html. Information about late drop is available at http://www.sjsu.edu/sac/advising/latedrops/policy/ . Students should be aware of the current deadlines and penalties for adding and dropping classes.University PoliciesAcademic integrityStudents should know that the University’s Academic Integrity Policy is availabe at http://www.sa.sjsu.edu/download/judicial_affairs/Academic_Integrity_Policy_S07-2.pdf. Your own commitment to learning, as evidenced by your enrollment at San Jose State University and the University’s integrity policy, require you to be honest in all your academic course work. Faculty members are required to report all infractions to the office of Student Conduct and Ethical Development. The website for Student Conduct and Ethical Development is available at http://www.sa.sjsu.edu/judicial_affairs/index.html. Instances of academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. Cheating on exams or plagiarism (presenting the work of another as your own, or the use of another person’s ideas without giving proper credit) will result in a failing grade and sanctions by the University. For this class, all assignments are to be completed by the individual student unless otherwise specified. If you would like to include in your assignment any material you have submitted, or plan to submit for another class, please note that SJSU’s Academic Policy F06-1 requiresapproval of instructors.Campus Policy in Compliance with the American Disabilities ActIf you need course adaptations or accommodations because of a disability, or if you need to make special arrangements in case the building must be evacuated, please make an appointment with me as soon as possible, or see me during office
