The aim of the course is to equip students with skills and knowledge to:
- Identify and calculate different types of costs (direct, indirect, variable, and fixed costs).
- Distinguish between job-costing, process-costing, and joint-costing systems.
- Determine the product cost by means of full- costing and direct-costing methods.
- Determine the product cost by means of historical (actual) and standard cost systems.
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.
