Week 1: Introduction and Cost Behavior - Discussion

Cost Terms, Classifications, and Behavior (graded)
Welcome to our Week 1 Discussions! To get us started, let's consider the following questions.

1) Would a traditional income statement differ depending on whether the business is a service organization, merchandiser, or manufacturer?

2) Could we use managerial accounting tools to assess the profitability of an organization other than a manufacturing business, or are the topics that we are learning only related to manufacturing?

3) If we could use these concepts in service and/or merchandising businesses, how would we go about doing so?
