Cost Accounting and Management Control is a senior seminar focused on managerial decision making and uses of internal accounting data (i.e., revenue and costs; incentive contracts; forecasts; etc.). You will integrate knowledge acquired in your undergraduate accounting courses with that from other courses, readings from current academic and professional literature, and related articles to sharpen skills related to cost assessment, performance evaluation, and managerial control. This course is designed to explicitly consider the role of uncertainty and other statistical issues when making corporate decisions. For the most part, this course is a "selected topics" course; focusing on topics intimately related with managerial decision making.
