Student’s Responsibilities:
1. The course requires continuous work throughout the term, which includes reading and solving cases conceptually and numerically, and participating in the Small Business Plan.
2. Students must meet ¾ or more of attendance rate (of the total lecture time) for each course in order to be eligible for credits and grades. Failure to attend all class sessions will negatively impact the final grade. Class sessions should not be missed unless an emergency takes place, in which case students should notify the instructor via email before class.
3. Use of phone, tablet, smartwatch and other communication devices for purposes other than learning are strictly prohibited during class. Students using the laptop for non-learning purposes during the classroom will be noted, and it will negatively impact the final grade.

Office hours are available for students who need further clarification of concepts presented in lecture and require further assistance understanding the concepts.

Access to University Electronic Mail and Google Classroom:
Students are expected to have access to university email and Google Classroom. The syllabus, lecture slides, and other pertinent information will be distributed by Google Classroom, and students are expected to check it frequently.

Learning Method:
This course combines the use of the following learning methods: active learning method through case method, weekly quiz and homework, and the International Culinary Group Project.

Weekly Homework and Quiz
In order to improve understanding of managerial accounting concepts introduced in this course, students will be assigned with homework and quiz. The homework will be assigned at the end of the course to test the knowledge learned in the class. The quiz tests accounting concepts learned in the previous week, and it will be given at the start of the class, and students are given 15 minutes to do the quiz. Grades for the weekly quiz and homework will be provided in the following week.

Case Method: Think, Argue and Learn
It is important that you adequately prepare for assigned case discussions prior to each class session. You will be expected to have reviewed and “solved” the case prior to the actual class discussion. Individual case solution to assignments should be uploaded to Google Classroom well before the class and it will be graded.
At the beginning of each class session, 20 minutes will be dedicated to group discussion on case(s) that have been assigned for discussion on that day. The member of each group will be randomly assigned at the beginning of each class session. Within the group, you are expected to first individually reflect on how you would answer the questions for the case. Then you should clarify your individual analysis in the class discussion session. Active discussion on both the group and in-class sessions is encouraged and will be assessed.

Simulation: The International Culinary Group Project – Experience and Learn
This project is inspired by “The Cookie Project” developed by Kelly Richmond Pope from DePaul University. The “International Culinary Group Project” provides the students hands-on experience in applying managerial accounting concepts, tools and knowledge learned during the class and case studies. At the end of the project, students will have personal experience working in team by engaging in business planning, budgeting, marketing, presentation, and report writing.
