The new dean believes in using cost accounting information to make decisions and is reviewing a staff-developed income statement broken down by the degree offered. The dean is considering closing down the BBA program because the analysis, which follows, shows a loss. Tuition increases are not possible. The dean has asked for your advice. If the BBA degree program is dropped, school administration costs are not expected to change, but direct costs of the program, such as operating costs, building maintenance, and classroom costs, would be saved. There will be no other changes in the operations or costs of other programs. STATE UNIVERSITY BUSINESS SCHOOL, BBA DEGREEDegree Income StatementFor the Academic Year Ending June 30  Revenue$425,000     Costs      Advertising—BBA program 20,000       Faculty salaries 210,000       Degree operating costs (part-time staff) 24,000       Building maintenance 34,000       Classroom costs (building depreciation) 90,000       Allocated school administration costs 55,000      Total costs$433,000      Net loss$(8,000)     Required:What revenues and costs are probably differential for the decision to drop the BBA program? 5)During May, Budget Baking is preparing its June budget.  In preparing the budget the company starts with the actual results for April (the most recent month for which complete data are available). Then, they consider what the differences in costs will be between April and June.     Management expects the number of cookies sold to be 10 percent greater in June than in April, and it expects all food costs (e.g., flour, eggs) to be 10 percent higher in June than in April. Management expects “other” labor costs to be 15 percent higher in June than in April, partly because more labor will be required in June and partly because employees will get a pay raise. The manager will get a pay raise that will increase the salary from $3,100 in April to $3,600 in June. Rent and utilities are not expected to change. Required:Prepare a budget for Carmen’s Cookies for June. (Omit the “$” sign in your response.) 6)State University Business School (SUBS) offers several degrees, including Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). STATE UNIVERSITY BUSINESS SCHOOL, BBA DEGREEDegree Income StatementFor the Academic Year Ending June 30  Revenue$2,150,000     Costs      Advertising—BBA program 90,000       Faculty salaries 1,095,000       Degree operating costs (part-time staff) 205,000       Building maintenance 200,000       Classroom costs (building depreciation) 440,000      Allocated school administration costs 230,000     Total costs$2,260,000      Net loss$-110,000     The dean of the Business School is considering expanding the BBA program by offering an evening program in a nearby city. The program would be the same size (in terms of students). The school’s CFO estimates that the combined BBA revenue (on-campus plus the evening program) will be twice the current revenue, as shown in the above table. Because the evening program will be new, advertising expenses for the evening session will be three times their current level. Faculty salaries will double. Degree operating costs will increase by 50 percent. Building maintenance and classroom costs will remain unchanged, but classroom space will be rented at a cost of $175,000 per academic year. School administration costs will increase by $25,000 , and allocated school administration costs (for both programs) will be $335,000 per academic year. Required:a.What will be the contribution of the combined BBA program be given these estimates?    Are there other factors the dean should consider before making her decision?  7) Al’s Brake Shop had sales revenues and operating costs in 2014 of $650,000 and $525,000, respectively.
