Content:

Exercise Managerial Accounting Practices I:

The methods and instruments, which were previously processed theoretically in the module "Concepts and Instruments of Management Accounting", are practiced in the application-oriented lectures “Managerial Accounting Practices I” and “Managerial Accounting Practices II” based on specific case studies. In "Managerial Accounting Practices I", instruments are discussed which primarily focus on information supply and decision-making support.

 

Exercise Managerial Accounting Practices II:

The methods and instruments, which were previously processed theoretically in the module "Concepts and Instruments of Management Accounting", are practiced in the application-oriented lectures “Managerial Accounting Practices I” and “Managerial Accounting Practices II” based on specific case studies. In “Managerial Accounting Practices II”, operative and strategic Management Accounting instruments are discussed and presented as well as instruments of decision-influencing.

 

Seminaristic Lecture Experimental Management Accounting Research:

Within the scope of the course "Experimental Management Accounting Research", the participants will fundamentally deal with the methodological premises of experimental research, in particular vignette research. With the seminar module "Experimental Management Accounting Research" in the winter term, the obtained knowledge can be applied to experiments with experimental subjects and groups on different topics (e.g., cognitive restrictions, decision-making behavior, motivation and performance output).

 

Seminaristic Lecture Management Reporting:

In the context of the course “Management Reporting” the participants will deal fundamentally with the tools Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel frequently used in Management Accounting practice. For this purpose, a practice-relevant case study is elaborated, in which the students produce a meaningful management report as a result.

Competences and targeted learning outcomes:

 

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to

·         know, differentiate and discuss various traditional Management Accounting instruments on basis of case studies,

·         transfer conceptual Management Accounting knowledge to practical problem solving processes,

·         support entrepreneurial decision-makers with Management Accounting-specific knowledge and apply this expertise in corporate processes,

·         know, use and critically evaluate the various Management Accounting instruments to influence decisions with method-oriented case studies,

·         know and use the various Management Accounting instruments for decision-support and to evaluate them critically with method-oriented case studies on the operative and strategic level,

·         identify Management Accounting interconnections and measures and justify decisions with the Management Accounting instruments.

Recommended or compulsory prerequisites:

Prerequisite for the award of credit points:

The contents of the module Management Accounting I are recommended as previous knowledge. For industrial engineers, Management Accounting I is obligatory to be able to take part in Management Accounting II.

Passing the written exams in the compulsory subjects Management Accounting Practices I and II (90 min each) and successful participation in a compulsory elective subject. Students can choose between the two seminaristic lectures “Experimental Management Accounting Research” or “Management Reporting”. The prerequisite for successful participation in the two electives (Experimental Management Accounting Research / Management Reporting) is a written elaboration and presentation.

 

 

Grading:

Weighting in the overall grading:

The overall grade is composed of the results of the exams in Management Accounting I and II and the grade of the chosen elective subject (Experimental Management Accounting Research / Management Reporting).
