This chapter provides an innovative way to introduce a series of managerial assignments that will allow students to take an example of a real company that interests them and answer questions designated by the instructor. The assignments are individualized to let students choose their area of interest and apply accounting concepts. At the same time, the instructor formulates questions for students to answer based on the materials covered. This chapter also provides an implementation process and student feedback.
The author wishes to thank the editor, Dr. Dorothy Feldmann and Diane E. Gruenberg, from the College of New Jersey, for their comments and editorial help in this manuscript.
