Data Analytics & Excel Skill Development for Career Readiness

The basics of accounting havent changed much in hundreds of years, but businesses have experienced significant change in the past decade due to the increased use of new technologies ranging from data analytics and Blockchain to machine learning and artificial intelligence. Technology is rapidly altering how accounting is performed and what can be done with the data once they are collected. In response to the changing demands of the business world, the AACSB has incorporated data analytics requirements within its educational framework. More recently, the AICPA and NASBA have underscored the importance of data analytics by making it a significant element in the CPA Evolution Model Curriculum. The consensus suggests that todays business students need an understanding and working knowledge of data analytics and data visualization to compete for the best jobs. In addition, employers expect prospective employees to be proficient with Excel.

In recognition of the increasing importance of data analytics and the need for Excel proficiency, the Fifth Edition includes several new features to enhance students’ career readiness.

  • In many chapters, we use data visualizations to depict financial information. It is important for students to become comfortable interpreting visual depictions of data.

  • Each chapter includes assignments that require students to use Excel and Tableau to hone data analysis and data visualization skills.

  • Appendix B, at at the end of the book, provides an overview of data analytics, data visualization, and best practices for the effective display of data.

  • myBusinessCourse (MBC) now contains a series of short videos that demonstrate the basic functions of Excel. These videos can be accessed within MBC as part of your MBC course. In addition, a number of the data analytic problems are accompanied by videos, demonstrating how to complete the assignment or a similar assignment.

Welcome to the Fifth Edition of Financial & Managerial Accounting for Decision Makers!

To the adopters of the previous editions, thank you for contributing to the succes of those editions. We wrote this book to equip students with the accounting techniques and insignts necessary to succeed in today's business environment. It reflects our combined experience in teaching accounting to college students at all levels. For anyone who pursues a career in business, the ability to read, analyze, and interpret accounting information is an essential skill. Financial & Managerial Accounting for Decision Makers is written for future business leaders who want to understand how accounting information is prepared and how the information is used by investors, creditors, financial analysts, and managers. Our goal is to provide the most engaging, relevant, and accessible textbook available.

Target Audience

Financial & Managerial Accounting for Decision Makers is intended for use in an introductory accounting course that combines financial and managerial accounting concepts, at either the undergraduate or the graduate level; one that balances the preparation of accounting information with its analysis and interpretation.

Financial & Managerial Accounting for Decision Makers is real-world oriented and focuses on the most salient aspects of accounting. It teaches students how to read, analyze, and interpret accounting data to make informed business decisions. To that end, it consistently incorporates real company data, both in the body of each chapter and throughout the assignment material.

Real Data Incorporated Throughout

Today's business students must be skilled in using real financial statements to make business decisions. We feel strongly that the more students are exposed to real financial statements, the more comfortable they become with the differences in financial statements that exist across companies and industries. Through their exposure to various financial statements, students will learn that, while financial statements do not all look the same, they can readily understand and interpret them to make business decisions. Because we update all of the examples throughout the chapters with the most recently available information, students will see the impact of recent events on financial statements, such as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, today’s students must have the skills to go beyond basic financial statements to interpret and apply nonfinancial disclosures, such as note disclosures and supplementary reports. We expose students to the analysis and interpretation of real company data and nonfinancial disclosures through the use of focus companies in each chapter, the generous incorporation of note disclosures, financial analysis discussions in many chapters, and an abundance of assignments that draw on real company data and disclosures. This analysis extends into managerial accounting topics where real world companies are the basis for hypothetical, yet typical and relevant decision-making scenarios. An ample number of open-ended critical thinking questions are intermingled within the content of each chapter and include suggested solutions.

Focus Companies for Each Chapter

Each chapter’s content is explained through the accounting and reporting activities of real companies. Each chapter incorporates a “focus company” for special emphasis and demonstration. The enhanced instructional value of focus companies comes from the way they engage students in real analysis and interpretation. Focus companies were selected based on student appeal and the diversity of industries.

Road Maps

Each chapter opens with a Road Map that identifies each learning objective for the chapter, the related page numbers, the eLecture videos, the reviews, and the assignments. This table allows students and faculty to quickly grasp the chapter content and to efficiently navigate the desired topic.

Note Disclosures and Management Disclosures

We incorporate note disclosures and other management disclosures, where appropriate, throughout the book. We explain the significance of the note disclosure and then demonstrate how to use the disclosed information to make managerial inferences and decisions. A representative sample follows:

Financial Analysis Discussions

Each financial accounting chapter includes a financial analysis discussion that introduces key ratios and applies them to the financial statements of the chapter’s focus company. By weaving some analysis into each chapter, we try to instill in students a deeper appreciation for the significance of the accounting methods being discussed. One such analysis discussion follows:

Assignments that Draw on Real Data

It is essential for students to be able to apply what they have learned to real financial statements. Therefore, we have included an abundance of assignments in each chapter that draw on recent, real data and disclosures. These assignments are readily identified by an icon in the margin that includes the company’s ticker symbol and the exchange on which the company’s stock trades. A representative example follows:

Balanced Approach

As instructors of introductory financial accounting, we recognize that the first financial accounting course serves the general business students as well as potential accounting majors. Financial & Managerial Accounting for Decision Makers embraces this reality. This book balances financial reporting, analysis, interpretation, and decision making with the more standard aspects of accounting such as journal entries, T-accounts, and the preparation of financial statements.

3-Step Process: Analyze, Journalize, Post

One technique we use throughout the book to maintain a balanced approach is the incorporation of a 3-step process to analyze and record transactions. Step 1 analyzes the impact of various transactions on the financial statements using the financial statement effects template (FSET). Step 2 records the transaction using journal entries, and Step 3 requires students to post the journal entries to T-accounts.

The FSET captures each transaction’s effects on the four financial statements: the balance sheet, income statement, statement of stockholders’ equity, and statement of cash flows. For the balance sheet, we differentiate between cash and noncash assets to identify the cash effects of transactions. Likewise, equity is separated into the contributed and earned capital components. (The latter includes retained earnings as its major element.) Finally, income statement effects are separated into revenues, expenses, and net income. (The updating of retained earnings is denoted with an arrow line running from net income to earned capital.) The FSET provides a convenient means to represent financial accounting transactions and events in a simple, concise manner for assessing their effects on financial statements. To provide faculty flexibility to tailor instruction, all relevant end of chapter materials can be assigned using the journal entry approach or the FSET approach.

Innovative Pedagogy

Business Insights, Critical Thinking, and Decision Making

Students appreciate and become more engaged when they can see the real-world relevance of what they are learning in the classroom. We have included a generous number of current, real-world examples in Business Insight boxes and through critical thinking and decision-making questions. The following is a representative example:

Learning Objective Reviews

Accounting can be challenging—especially for students lacking business experience or previous exposure to business courses. To reinforce concepts presented in each chapter and to ensure student comprehension, we include a review problem at the conclusion of each learning objective. Answers to the review problems are included at the end of the chapter. Each review has a corresponding Guided Example video, available to students in myBusinessCourse (MBC), our online learning and homework system. In addition, each Review is assignable in MBC.

  • Revised nearly all of the assignments in each chapter with updated data, and in some cases, replaced the chapter’s focus company.

Financial Accounting Chapters (1-12)

  • Chapter Updates:  As appropriate, the text and assignments have been updated to reflect the latest FASB standards and other current information:

    • Chapter 4 incorporates restricted cash as part of total cash presented on the statement of cash flows.
    • Chapter 5 includes updated information on industry ratios that is referenced in real life examples not only in this chapter, but throughout the text.
    • Chapter 8 includes a discussion on digital assets with a supporting end of chapter assignment.
    • Chapter 10 discusses the election in lease accounting to not separate lease and non-lease components.
    • Chapter 11 reflects the new guidance on accounting for convertible instruments (including the impact on diluted EPS).
    • Chapter 12 briefly discusses the recording of credit losses on available-for-sale debt securities and new guidance on the amortization of goodwill for private companies.
    • Expanded the FSET presentation in Chapter 4 (transactions that impact the statement of cash flows) and in Chapter 10 (accounting for operating leases by the lessee).
  • Deere & Co. replaced Delta Air Lines as the focus company of Chapter 10.
  • In addition to the chapter-specific changes, there have been several changes that span all financial accounting chapters. Some of these changes include:
    • Expanded all end of chapter materials to allow for the assigning of either the journal entry approach or the FSET approach.
    • Updated note disclosures and other nonfinancial disclosures.
    • Updated excerpts from the business and popular press.
    • Nearly all of the assignments in each chapter have been revised with updated data or replaced with a new company.

Managerial Accounting Chapters (13-24)

In general, we made significant improvements to the flow of each chapter and enhanced topical coverage.

  • Emphasized critical thinking required in managerial decision-making through new questions inserted within, and directly related to, the chapter content.
  • Highlighted ESG implications of each chapter’s topics in a variety of ways, including new text discussions, critical thinking questions, and end-of-chapter assignments—all marked with an ESG icon. 

  • Streamlined, revamped, and rearranged chapter content to improve the chapter flow.
  • Revised, enhanced, and added new chapter exhibits and graphics.
  • Added many new end-of-chapter assignments (over 80 new assignments in total).
    • Added new assignments to ensure adequate coverage per learning objective.
    • Expanded ethics-related assignments, identified with an ethics icon.

    • Added CMA adapted questions, identified with a CMA icon. Permission has been received from the Institute of Certified Management Accountants to use questions and/or unofficial answers from past CMA examinations.

  • Changed many focus companies to increase student interest. We reference the focus company for the vast majority of examples within a chapter for a more consistent presentation. In a similar way, we utilize a competitor to the focus company throughout many of the chapter reviews.
  • New Chapter Focus Companies:
