Description :

Marginal profitability analysis provides relevant decision information for setting prices, product design, and product profitability. Analysis of whether to open or close locations or divisions can also be done with marginal profitability analysis.

The course starts by defining marginal costs and marginal profits and then explains how to calculate marginal profitability. You will learn how to create cost-volume-profit (CVP) analyses and breakeven analysis. Marginal profitability is compared to traditional full absorption product costing or activity-based costing to identify the pros and cons of each method and when each is appropriate.  

The course provides practical examples of making decisions with marginal profitability analysis. Examples include determining optimal production amounts and which products to promote. The final section explains how to calculate the change in profitability from a price increase and a price decrease. A worksheet template is provided for this analysis.

The more (appropriate) target words you use in your description results in more people being able to find your course, e.g. deliver a nice, descriptive paragraph or two or three. Whatever is sufficient to get the details of your course across. Sometimes there will be a high-level description and a low-level, more detailed description.
