Managerial Accounting
Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth

Managerial Accounting studies management decision-making in the presence of accounting information. The concepts of opportunity cost and organizational architecture form the course's conceptual framework. Opportunity cost underlies decision-making; organizational architecture underlies the use of accounting as part of the firm's control mechanism. We use both a textbook and case discussion to examine these issues. The major topics include cost behavior; accounting costs versus opportunity costs; divisional performance measures; transfer pricing; budgeting; cost allocation; activity-based costing; and cost variance analysis.MA focuses on the use of accounting data within the firm to improve managerial decision-making. 

Tuck Integrative Experiential Learning

TuckINTEL stands for Tuck’s Integrative Experiential Learning. It is a customized, immersive, integrative, and competitive exercise. The purpose of this minicourse is to help students integrate the key insights of Tuck’s first-year core curriculum. The idea here is to add integrative experiences in our MBA program that will help our students connect the dots across our core curriculum. This intensive, four-day course incorporates key elements of finance & accounting, marketing, communications, statistics, economics, decision science, strategy and management, and operations. During the course, teams of four or five students run a company in a next generation wind turbine market for a multi-year timeframe. Each year constitutes a year of decision making about such areas as marketing and communication, strategic priorities, timely production, economic analysis, cash requirements and funding, presentations to the board, and team excellence and personal leadership impacts.
