Course Overview

What is Cost and Management Accounting Course? To be successful, business owners and managers must have a good understanding of the revenues and costs of their organisation. Furthermore, for better understanding, detailed visibility into profits and losses for every profit centre, cost centre and location within the business is critical. Cost accounting enables management to accurately account for costs, both variable and fixed, so important for pricing purposes.

With proper cost accounting, the organisation can evaluate all strategies within your business, break-even analysis, investment appraisals, level of production and the profitability of products.  It also improves the budgeting process and decision-making abilities, as financial decisions are driven by accurate cost estimation.
