Course description

This course introduces the principles and methods of data collection and presentation for planning and control, performance evaluation, and management decision making. It emphasizes product costing (both traditional and activity-based), cost-volume-profit analysis, operating and capital budgeting, evaluation of business operating segments, transfer pricing, and relevant costs for decision making. Students can count ECON S-1901 or the Harvard Extension School course MGMT E-1600, but not both, toward an Extension School degree or certificate.
