Sunrise Hotels: An Integrated Managerial Accounting Teaching Case

“Sunrise Hotels” consists of six, linked cases developed from a field study of a large hotel chain in North America. The cases are short, so they can be distributed and solved in less than a full class period, after a short lecture by the instructor. Students often see managerial topics as an unrelated collection of tools rather than as a coherent, integrated framework for decision-making and management control. Questions included with each short case guide students, and the integration developed across six cases in a single setting should help students view managerial accounting topics as inter-related tools for decision making and control.
