  • Develops mastery of key accounting concepts through financial decision making cases that take a hospitality manager's perspective on business issues
  • Presents accounting  problems in the context of a range of countries and currencies
  • Includes a new chapter that addresses a range of financial management topics that include share market workings, agency issues, dividend policy as well as operating and financial leverage
  • Includes a further new chapter that provides a financial perspective on revenue management
  • Includes accounting problems at the end of each chapter to be used to test knowledge and apply understanding to real life situations
