on the motivational and learning process of managerial accounting students. In addition, the
authors aimed to compare the opinions of managerial accounting students regarding traditional
term papers and poster projects. A poster project that culminated in a professional-style poster
session was assigned. Students completed a group project producing a poster describing
the production process of a manufacturing company and determining the most appropriate
costing system for that company with underlying reasons. Two questionnaires were conducted
after each assignment in order to measure the effect of the poster project on the motivation
and learning of the managerial accounting students. This pilot study is the first to explore
perceptions of poster projects as a motivational and learning tool in managerial accounting
courses in the world.
