I received a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Otago and a Master of Science in Applied Economics and Doctor of Philosophy in Business Administration (Accounting and Finance) from the University of Rochester. I have work experience in both the Government and Private sectors. My research deals with financial reporting issues, accounting policy choices, and forensic accounting. My research has been published in the Journal of Accounting and Economics. I am a Chartered Accountant (CA - the NZ equivalent of the CPA), a Certified Management Accountant (CMA) and a Certified Financial Manager (CFM). I was awarded the Robert Beyer Gold Medal for excellence on the CMA examination. I am a member of the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (NZICA), the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), the American Accounting Association (AAA), the Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand (AFAANZ), and the Association of Chartered Accountants in the United States (ACAUS).

Catalog description: MGMT 200 Introductory Accounting: The objectives of the course are to help students (1) understand what is in financial statements and what the statements say about a business, (2) identify the business activities that caused the amounts that appear in the statements, and (3) understand how, when, and at what amount the effects of manager and employee actions will appear in the statements. Course objective: The course has two primary objectives. The first is to give you the skills to produce financial information, i.e. to send the relevant signals to decision makers. The second is to give you the skills to interpret the financial report, i.e. to receive the signals. How you use these signals for economic decisions is covered by courses in management accounting, financial statement analysis, finance, and strategic management. At the end of the course, you should be able to navigate your way through the primary financial statements of a typical publicly traded US corporation. To meet these objectives you will gain an understanding of the processes used to generate, record, aggregate, and report financial information. You will gain an understanding of the reasoning behind the processes used to record financial information and the manner in which it is reported to external decision makers. You will gain an understanding of the four basic financial statements: the balance sheet, the income statement, the statement of retained earnings, and the statement of cash flows, and how these statements are articulated. Finally you will gain an understanding of the importance of financial statement information, despite its limitations, in interpreting the performance of organizations. Course Conduct: There are three classes per week and class meetings follow a lecture and problem analysis format. Lectures and problem assignments are used to focus attention on important topics. Class sessions will concentrate on introducing basic accounting concepts and procedures while demonstrating these concepts by working assigned problems. The assigned problems are listed on the course outline below. NOTE: These are not homework problems and will not be collected nor graded; they are for classroom demonstration only. You will get more from the problems if you have worked them before class. Not all assigned problems will be completed in class. Solution keys to the assigned problems will be posted on Katalyst. Course materials: Required: Financial Accounting: The Impact on Decision Makers, Porter and Norton, 6th edition bundled with CengageNow, South-Western Cengage Learning, 2009. ISBN: 0324606222 Recommended: Financial Accounting: A Business Perspective, Hermanson and Edwards, 9th edition, Freeload Press, 2005. ISBN: 1-930789-73-4. This is a free e-book and can be downloaded from HYPERLINK "http://www.freeloadpress.com" www.freeloadpress.com Katalyst: Syllabus modifications, course comments, homework assignments, homework solutions, additional sample exams, exams solutions, grade information will be posted on Katalyst: HYPERLINK "http://katalyst.krannert.purdue.edu" http://katalyst.krannert.purdue.edu . There is no other web site for this class. You will need to be registered for Mgmt 200 to gain access to this site. When you reach the website you will be asked to logon and provide your password ? the site uses your purdue career account authentication. On your first visit you will need to setup an email address for communications. In order to receive any class emails you must verify a valid email address. Grading: Your performance in Mgmt 200 will be evaluated based on graded assignments and examinations as shown below: Homework assignments 70 points Cengage Now 40 points Exam 1 (Tuesday, October 7) 120 points Exam 2 (Tuesday, November 11) 120 points Final Exam (Finals week) 150 points Total points 500 The Cengage Now component will be discussed and presented separately early in the semester. The use of the text online system for student review and testing is new to me and I reserve the right to reassign these points if necessary. In the unlikely event of a major campus emergency or instructor emergency, course requirements, deadlines and grading percentages are subject to change that may be necessitated by a revised semester calendar or other circumstances. Any changes will be announced in class and/or posted on the Katalyst web page. With the introduction of the new OnePurdue system, plus and minus grades will be assigned this semester. Homework: Homework problems will be posted on Katalyst and assigned for collection on the dates listed on the course outline. There are nine homework assignments, each will be graded on a 10 point scale and the best 7 will count towards your final grade. The grade for each homework assignment will be graded using only a portion of the assignment. If you complete 75% of an assignment and the grade is based on the missing 25% you may score very poorly. If you complete 50% of an assignment and this includes the graded portion, you will still be penalized for an incomplete assignment. Homework assignments should be done individually, but you are encouraged to discuss these assignments with each other and even work on preliminary solutions together. What is not acceptable is to copy someone else?s assignment and claim it as your own work. Once the homework has been graded and the grade posted on Katalyst, you may pick up your graded assignments for review from the TA?s during their regularly scheduled office hours in KRAN 513. Exams: The content of the two mid-term examinations will be advised in class prior to the exam and on Katalyst but are scheduled for: Tuesday, October 7 8:00?10:00pm Elliott Hall of Music Tuesday, November 11 8:00?10:00pm Elliott Hall of Music Each mid-term will be 90 minutes and start as soon after 8:00pm as possible. Once all the exams have been distributed and the signal given to start you will have 90 minutes to complete the exam. Bring your student ID to all exams: We will do a 100% ID check. Seating assignments for each exam will be posted on Katalyst prior to the exam. The exams will be closed book and no notes, but you may use a calculator. Calculators may be financial or scientific calculators. Other electronic devices such as walkmans, ipods, cell phones, PDA?s are NOT permitted. If you bring review materials into the exam room (course notes, textbook, etc) to review prior to the start of the exam, these items must be secured in a back pack or otherwise secured out of view during the exam. If the review material is visible once the signal to start the exam has been given it will be assumed that you are accessing the material in violation of course standards. Examinations will test individual performance and are based on the course text and classroom material. The exams will be a mix of objective and subjective components. Students are to take exams at the scheduled times. Only in the case of a well-documented emergency or university-sponsored activity will an exam be rescheduled. You must get the instructor?s prior approval, or if this is not possible, advise the instructor as soon as possible. Ethics Statement: Ethics and values are very important in accounting and in the world of business. Ethics and values are also important in education. The instructor will assume, unless there is evidence to the contrary, that you are an ethical student. To fulfill your ethical responsibilities, the standards for this course are as follows: Examinations: All exams must be the exclusive work of the individual student. The use of unauthorized written materials, use of electronic devices other than permitted calculators, copying from another student, receiving or giving verbal or written assistance from or to another student during an exam are all examples of cheating. Students who are found to be in violation of these policies will receive a grade of zero and will be referred to the Dean of Students. The Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS) issues a number of brochures, including ?Academic Integrity: A Guide for Students?, that are available online at HYPERLINK "http://www.purdue.edu/odos/osrr/brochures.htm" http://www.purdue.edu/odos/osrr/brochures.htm Homework: Only the exams are subject to these rules, not the homework assignments. Successful accounting students usually work and study in teams. You may use any reference (books, class notes, other students, supplemental instructors, teaching assistants, the professor, the internet, etc) to help understand and complete the homework assignments successfully. However, it is not acceptable is to copy someone else?s assignment and claim it as your own work. Course outline: I will attempt to stay as close as possible to the course schedule that follows, but reserve the right to change the schedule as necessary. I may on occasion be slightly behind or ahead of the listed schedule. Major modifications will be announced in class and posted on Katalyst. Exams will be held on the dates listed. MGMT 200 ?
