Cost Accounting

Horngren • Datar • Rajan • Cripps • Hindi


The Arab World Edition of this popular text from world famous author Charles T. Horngren has been especially created to motivate and engage students of cost accounting from across the Arab World. While there are many cost accounting textbooks available on the market, none have been developed with such a strong focus on preparing students for an accounting career in both the Arab World and globally. This new text sets out to provide cost accounting students with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge students need to thrive in both their academic study and future careers. Drawing on many locally sourced examples and case studies, this text gives students an essential global perspective on cost accounting, all the while making core concepts relevant to students’ own experiences.
