The goal is to review a critical management accounting issue in the company (Starbucks or Facebook) you have chosen. Generally, accounting issues can be found in the MD&A or in the report of operations section of the Notes to the Financial Statements of the Annual Report.
In your review (paper) you are to clearly identify the accounting issue first (based on the topics we covered during the course), and to provide background on the company and its strategic environment. Determine how the company confronted and addressed the issue – or did not. You’ll support your opinion by evaluating the company’s financial statements using financial analysis techniques (such as trend, ratio, horizontal and/or vertical analysis). After describing how the company responded, evaluate the short-and long term strategic decisions. If you had been the decision maker, what would you have done differently?
In addition, your review should include the technology and communication techniques the company used, as well as to explain how this issue presented a legal, ethical, and/or social sustainability concern.
The Final Project is a compilation of Milestones I & II, as well as the elements required here and should not exceed 5 pages of content, not counting the Cover and Reference pages. Your review of Milestones I and II should be a summary of your findings from these elements, not the full cut/paste version of your paper (Think 1-2 meaty paragraphs to cover each paper). The Final Project should be reflective of proper APA style. Please refer to this link to the APA Style Guide (Links to an external site.) PAPERS RECEIVING A TURN IT IN SCORE OF 49% OR MORE WILL RESULT IN AN AUTOMATIC ZERO.
Use Starbucks’ Annual Reports (Links to an external site.). Here is the link to the SB2017 PDF – 10-K Annual Report (Links to an external site.).
Use Facebook’s Annual Reports (Links to an external site.). Here is the link to the 2017 PDF – 10-K Annual Report (Links to an external site.).
The 8-K’s are the Quarterly’s and the students should not use those.
REMINDER: Please review the steps for proper formatting of APA citations. Include citations in text (in the written paragraphs) as well as full citations in the references section. Copying word for word with no quotations, or paraphrasing without reference is considered plagiarism. Plagiarized work will result in a zero for the assignment, and potential failure of the class or expulsion from the program in accordance with Rivier’s Academic Integrity Policies. Please see this course’s pre-module for a reminder of the course expectations in this area. It is highly recommended that you review your Turn It In reports.
