Introducing students to terminology, methodologies, and issues related to the field, the course specifically explores cost accounting systems and cost-value-profit (CVP) analysis. When the course concludes, students will be able to “explain the firm’s internal cost systems to managers so that both the coordination and control functions are facilitated…[along with understanding] the strengths and weaknesses of each tool and be able to assist managers in deciding when and for what purpose which tool is optimal.”

In the coming months, the school will be offering courses in financial evaluation, operations management, and process improvement. The next course in this series, Managerial Accounting: Tools for Facilitating and Guiding Business Decisions, will be launched in June.
