Management Accounting with Excel (Winter 2018/19)

[Course language: English]

The Management Accounting Research Group is offering a practical introduction to Microsoft Excel in a Management Accounting setting.

Objective and course style:

The course aims at familiarizing students with Microsoft Excel as a very useful tool for management accounting applications. After a detailed overview of basic Excel functions as well as its fundamental formulas, students will learn to apply them to real world management accounting problems. The practical application is centered on a young, but running company, with three years of operating track record. Students will learn to model a basic profit & loss statement, cash flow statement and balance sheet for the business. Furthermore, for future planning, univariate regression analysis and Monte Carlo Simulation are implemented. The results of these forecasts are then used to prepare a reporting summary for the executive.

The course is open for bachelor- and master students.
