  • Product Description

    The case is set in a large teaching hospital. Students must analyze the actual and forecasted budgets provided for the previous year to identify the financial difficulties of the hospital. They can then solve costing and budgeting exercises. Finally, students may use the data they have generated in the case to prepare a budget for the following year. The case questions cover: revenue and expenditure variance analysis; activity-based costing (cost accounting); and simple capital budgeting problems that can be answered using net present value, IRR, and discount rate techniques.

    Learning Objective:
    This case is used to teach budgeting and financial management skills in a nonprofit organization.
