Overview

Though not all hospitality students want to be accountants, managerial accounting is a crucial skill for all hospitality students. Written for aspiring hospitality managers rather than accountants, this resource focuses on how accounting principles apply directly to hospitality management. With a reader-friendly style suitable for those with no prior accounting background, this book makes accounting fun with practical examples scattered throughout each chapter that clearly illustrate accounting concepts and theories. A running case study helps readers immediately apply what they ve learned to the types of key management decisions made at a full-service resort.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"I believe Managerial Accounting contains many benefits for both the instructor and the student. The Apply What You Have Learned section provides valuable exercises for active learners. Students and faculty can't get enough of these types of questions and problem sets."— Greg Charles, Western Culinary Institute

"The organization of the book is perfect! This is exactly how I teach my course. I have to jump from one chapter to another when I use other books."— Ben Goh, Texas Tech University, Department of Nutrition, Hospitality & Retailing

"I can honestly say that Managerial Accounting the most well-written accounting book that I have read to date. Perfect for the non-math major student! It is very easy to read, and I love how the authors keep repeating and building the confidence of students, saying 'You can do this,' and 'It's easy Math,' and then showing examples. The table of contents is excellent. Every aspect that I can think of is covered in the text."—James Mawhinney, Campus Dean, Strayer University, PA
