    Accounting Project Accounting Project BAC 3AA Profile of an Accounting Department My interview with the accountant of Robin Hood Multifoods Inc. was one of the greatest interviews I have ever experienced. The person whom I interviewed was Mr. Jeff R. Scott. Jeff was a really nice person when I asked him questions. His desk was not as organized as I thought, because accountants are really organized. The reason is because he just got promoted from assistant controller to controller. As I asked him more and more questions, the answers that came back at me were pretty interesting. Jeff R. Scott is a Chartered Accountant acquired at the University of Western Ontario. His requirements of completin ...

  • Brush With Aids Case Study - 914 words
    Brush With Aids Case Study Self-responsibility and interest can be examined in different perspectives. By nature, a person usually expects to reach his goal without considering the possibility of his or her decision and how it may affect the community around them. It is often times very difficult to differentiate responsibility from self-interest due to the fact that the consequences of being responsible conflict with the achievements of personal goals. According to the A Brush with AIDS case study, the character faces the problem of making a decision, based on her self-interest and social responsibility. The consequence of choosing creates many risks, not only for her career, but for her re ...

  • Compaq - 415 words
    Compaq Compaq Computers In analyzing the profitability of Compaq I came to the following conclusions. The gross profit is the difference of total revenue and total cost of products and services. In 1998, the gross profit was $7.19 billion, and in 1997, it was $6.75 billion and in 1996, it was $5.15 billion. Due to lack of information, other profitability ratios can not be determined such as the current ratio, quick ratio, ROE and ROI. The total revenue has increased by approximately 5 billion each year. Cost for services has increased six fold from 1996 to 1998, while the cost of products has gone down steadily. The increase in cost of services overshadows the decrease in cost of products. T ...
