Voto Finale

The priority teaching objective is to encourage, through lessons in theoretical framework, incident discussions and practical exercises, the learning of methodologies and of the logic of designing and operating cost accounting and managerial control systems to support the processes of Business Management.
KNOWLEDGE:
Programming and Control course is proposed to students with the aim of deepening and expanding the knowledge of the accounting and extra-accounting instruments inherent to the economic measurement processes learned in the course of the Financial Statement, and introduce the student to the management control tools. In the first part of the course (20 h.) we will learn Cost Accounting System(production costs). In the second part (20 h.) the Management Control System will be addressed. The skills obtained in these areas will be subject to subsequent reinforcement in the optional course "Management Control".
