Though not all hospitality students want to be accountants, managerial accounting is a crucial skill for all hospitality students. Written for aspiring hospitality managers rather than accountants, this resource focuses on how accounting principles apply directly to hospitality management. With a reader-friendly style suitable for those with no prior accounting background, this book makes accounting fun with practical examples scattered throughout each chapter that clearly illustrate accounting concepts and theories. A running case study helps readers immediately apply what they?ve learned to the types of key management decisions made at a full-service resort.
