Course Description:
Cost accounting provides key data to managers for planning and controlling, as well
as data on costing products, services, and customers. By focusing on basic concepts,
analyses, uses, and procedures instead of procedures alone, we recognize cost
accounting as a managerial tool. Cost accounting will derive the analytical skills of
the student and they will analyse the situations given to them and make decisions on
rational basis to minimize cost and assure quality.
The second part of the course presents alternative methods of preparing managerial
accounting information, and the remainder of the course examines how these
methods are used by companies. Managerial accounting is a company's internal
language, and is used for decision-making, production management, product design
and pricing and for motivating and evaluating employees. Unless you understand
managerial accounting, you cannot have a thorough understanding of a company's
internal operations. What will be learnt in this course will help to understand the
operations of your future employer (and enable you to be more successful at your
job), and help you understand other companies you encounter in your role as
competitor, consultant, or investor.
The course has been designed to give students an understanding of different types of
costs associated with manufacturing companies (and might be service providing
companies). It gives knowledge about basic costing principles along with preparation
