7 Excel projects for your managerial accounting course

Ready or not, welcome to the fall semester! I thought I would repost this information as you are getting ready to kick off the new semester. If you teach managerial accounting, you may want to look at Dr. Karen Braun’s Excel projects for managerial accounting. She has created seven Excel projects on various topics in managerial accounting, complete with step-by-step student instructions and instructor solutions. The topics include:

  • Job costing
  • Cost behavior
  • CVP analysis
  • Process costing
  • Budgeting
  • Flexible budgeting
  • Division evaluation

The site for the Excel projects is https://sites.google.com/case.edu/excel-for-management-acctg/home. Contact Karen directly for the suggested solutions; you can email her at karen.braun@case.edu.

You can read more about these Excel projects in the August edition of Strategic Finance; link here. Karen also won the 2016 Bea Sanders/AICPA Innovation in Teaching Award for these projects.

Note: Karen Braun, an accounting professor at Case Western Reserve University, is my co-author on our Managerial Accounting textbook, so I know her and her work well. These projects are superb. I urge you to use one or more of them in your introductory managerial accounting class – her materials make the integration of these projects into the classroom go well. There is no cost for these projects and you can edit them as you wish for non-commercial purposes.
