MA610 Stand-Alone Project Case Study in Managerial Accounting
Stand-Alone Project: Case Study in Managerial Accounting (250 points)
You should begin working on the Stand-Alone Project early in the course. Each assignment provides a benchmark for completing the Stand-Alone Project in a timely manner while working through the course. You will find this information in the “Stand-Alone Project Benchmark” section of each assignment.
Your Stand-Alone Project responses should be both grammatically and mechanically correct and formatted in the same fashion as the project itself. If there is a Part A, your response should identify a Part A, etc. In addition, you must appropriately cite all resources used in your response and document them in a bibliography using APA style.
Each assignment in this course focuses on a different concept in managerial accounting. These concepts apply whether a firm is involved in manufacturing, merchandising, or service, as well as non-profit organizations. The purpose of this project is to help you understand the use and application of the concepts covered in the course. You are being asked to study an actual firm and to report on its use of the concepts covered in this course. (250 points) (A 20-page response is required.)
Part A
Select a firm that is publicly traded. This ensures you   can access the needed data and information from published financial   disclosures and articles found in various business journals such as Strategic   Finance, Management Accounting Quarterly, etc.
Note: For large firms, you may want to study only a   segment of the firm. If so, ensure that you break down company data for the   segment chosen.
Provide the following background information on the   firm you selected. (25 points)
Firm Name
Description of the Industry in Which the Firm Operates
Type of Business or Segment of the Firm (manufacturing,   merchandising, service, or non-profit organization)
General Description of the Firm’s Operations,   Organization, Products, and Markets
Note: The rest of the report will deal with the   concepts covered in this course. Following are concepts that should be   discussed in your report. Although some discussion relating to each concept   is expected, please feel free to place a greater emphasis on topics of   special interest to you. You may also want to place an emphasis on an area of   weakness that may result in corrective action by the firm.
Conversely, for your benefit, you may want to explore   in depth a topic in which the firm has a real strength. Your study may find   areas in which the firm needs improvement. A “no” answer for many of the   questions would indicate a weakness in the firm’s systems. In those instances,   you should make recommendations. Provide complete details of the   recommendations that you make, including why the recommendation is being made   and the benefits to be gained. Each of the following components of your   report requires a minimum of two (2) pages. This allows flexibility for you   to emphasize your areas of specific interest.
Part B
Cost Behavior and Cost-Volume-Profit (CVP) (Lesson #1):   Assess your firm’s use of these tools. (45 points)
Does the firm break down their costs by behavior?
Do they determine their break-even point?
Do they use these concepts in the decision-making   process? Do you have any recommendations to make?
Part C
ABC, Job Order, and Process Costing and Cost   Allocations (Lesson #2): Describe the cost system used by your firm. (45   points)
If your firm is not using ABC costing, do you think   that it is a good candidate to do so? Why or why not?
Do you have any recommendations to make?
Part D
Budgeting and Variance Analysis (Lesson #4): Describe   the budgeting process used by your firm. (45 points)

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
