Managerial Accounting, 6th Edition

ISBN: 9781119158011

Recognizing that most students will pursue careers as managers not accountants, Managerial Accounting, 6th Edition by James Jiambalvo focuses on the fundamental topics of managerial accounting, and helps you make direct connections between techniques in the business world and your future careers using cases and real managers’ comments on company issues. Managerial Accounting, 6th Edition helps you develop decision making skills through incremental analysis and stresses the fact that You Get What You Measure throughout the program.

This textbook is designed for a one semester managerial accounting course at both the undergraduate and MBA level. To keep the book streamlined, Chapter 13 Statement of Cashflow and Chapter 14 Analyzing Financial Statements have been made available online only on the Student Companion Site.

Managerial Accounting, 6th Edition is available with WileyPLUS with ORION adaptive learning. WileyPLUS with ORION addresses the challenges of student readiness and retention, and helps instructors and students improve learning outcomes by integrating course content with learning tools, assessment, and practice activities within one adaptive platform.


  • ORION: Simply by assigning ORION, instructors can identify early which students might be at risk of falling behind, engage with students around areas of weak performance, and measure outcomes for continuous lecture improvement.
  • Problem Solving Skills with Videos: New Problem Walkthrough Videos featuring author Jim Jiambalvo, teach students how to solve managerial accounting problems. These new videos are easily accessible, from homework problems.
  • Organized Learning: A new and streamlined learning design of both WileyPLUS and the text helps students find relevant videos, reading content, and resources based associated learning objectives, so they can make the best use of time outside of class.
