It will further develop and apply both technical and analytical skills used by managers of modern organisations when making financial decisions.

Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Apply a range of both established and emerging Management Accounting techniques;
  • Discuss how management accounting and the role of management accountants is changing;
  • Analyse the nature and role of management accounting in different organisational contexts;
