In the third course, you will learn how to use information from cost accounting to improve managerial decision-making.

How many units do companies need to sell in order to avoid losses or to achieve a targeted profit? How can managers improve pricing or product programs with information from cost accounting?
Knowledge of the basics of cost accounting, e.g. product and service costing and profit and loss calculation.
