20 Credits AUTUMN

Pre-requisites: MGT102


Aims/Description: This unit builds on the basic skills acquired in MGT102, viewing the management accountant as an important internal corporate communicator and provider of information for management decision and control purposes. Particular emphasis is placed on the management accountant's various methods of analysing and presenting different kinds of information, drawn from both internal and external sources.The unit distinguishes between the provision of management accounting services at policy, executive and operational levels. On the basis of this distinction, the management accountant is seen as centrally involved in the evaluation and implementation of alternative courses of action in organisations.The unit also examines the development of management accounting techniques in processes of sustainable organisational performance appraisal, analysis and reporting and considers such as strategic marketing, corporate social responsibility and ethics. Finally, the unit considers the developing contribution to be made by management accountants in the creation, evaluation and control of sustainable organisations.
