Sobre este curso

Omitir Sobre este curso

Success in any organization requires measurement systems to support decision making. This course focuses on preparing and analyzing accounting information for internal decisions that are often required to be made by both accounting and non-accounting professionals. In particular, the course will highlight how internal accounting information can be used (and often misused) when making complex business decisions. Managerial accounting is not constrained by the rules and regulations that surround financial accounting, which allows us to develop tailored measurement systems that provide a framework for planning and control, as well as costing products, services, and customers.

Students enrolled in this course will learn to prepare basic financial statements (e.g., balance sheet and income statement). In particular, they will understand how direct and overhead costs influence inventory and cost of goods sold calculations and are accounted for under financial reporting. Further, they will also learn to understand the importance of budgeting and how standard costing and variance analysis are used in evaluating managerial performance. In addition, students will learn how cost behavior and financial information are used in operational decision making and pricing. Finally, students will gain a basic understanding of how cash flows are used in capital budgeting decisions.

Verified Learners will need to purchase a textbook in order to successfully complete the course. See the FAQ for details.

¿Quién puede hacer este curso?

Lamentablemente, las personas de uno o más de los siguientes países o regiones no podrán registrarse para este curso: Irán, Cuba y la región de Crimea en Ucrania. Si bien edX consiguió licencias de la Oficina de Control de Activos Extranjeros de los EE. UU. (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC) para ofrecer nuestros cursos a personas en estos países y regiones, las licencias que hemos recibido no son lo suficientemente amplias como para permitirnos dictar este curso en todas las ubicaciones. edX lamenta profundamente que las sanciones estadounidenses impidan que ofrezcamos todos nuestros cursos a cualquier persona, sin importar dónde viva.
