WU-UWO International Spring Program in Managerial Accounting
The course will be held jointly by Dr. Mariana Sailer (WU) and Dr. Ruth Ann Strickland (University of Western Ontario). The course can be attended by students from WU and the Western, as well as a small group of incoming exchange students from WU’s other partner universities. The course comprises also social acitivites (WU campus tour, city tour around Vienna's Ringstraße and a Heurigen dinner) and practical learning opportunities at Verbund AG (May 16 from 10 am to 2 pm) and Flughafen Wien (May 24 from 1 to 7 pm).
In this course, we discuss fundamental issues of advanced management accounting and control in an international context. We identify important tools of management accounting, which are widely used in corporate practice all over the world. We focus on topics especially important for decentralized large international firms like product costing, budgeting and variance analysis.
The course is based on an international textbook (Garrison, Ray, Libby, Theresa & Webb, Alan (2020): Management Accounting. 12th Canadian edition. McGraw Hill Ryerson) to allow for discussing all related topics in English.
You need to be able to use Excel or a similar calculation program.
Certificates will be awarded to the participants of the course.

The final exam for WU students will take place on June 12 from 9:00 to 10:30 am in TC.2.01 together with course 4894.
