ACMG 6120 - Financial Management Tools for Decision Making


(3 sem. cr.) This course examines a variety of tools that are often used by managers as they seek to evaluate alternatives and make sound decisions. Using relevant management articles, case studies, and current topic analyses, students will hone their diagnostic critical-thinking skills and will learn to construct effective, ethical, fact-based arguments, which are among the fundamental capabilities of effective managers. Tools to be covered include breakeven and cost-volume-profit analysis for model pricing and cost sensitivity, forecasting and cost prediction, variance cost analysis, relevant cost analysis, project valuation and prioritization using payback, rates of return, and discounted cash flow methods. The course emphasizes topics such as how to align business needs with fact-based solutions, how to identify new opportunities, and how to manage and enhance an organization’s competitive position.
