AYB321 Strategic Management Accounting

This unit develops a holistic view of organisations, strategy and management accounting, providing an in-depth understanding of management accounting tools and techniques designed to support strategy. It builds on the technical knowledge gained in AYB225 Management Accounting by taking a more strategic orientation to the application of these techniques to aid in managerial decision-making. The unit examines contemporary issues in management accounting and considers the skills and competences that management accountants should develop to stay competitive as value-adding members of management teams. Students will explore the dynamism of contemporary management accounting techniques and practices, ensuring they can identify problems and apply the analytical skills needed when making decisions within firms. Students are encouraged to step outside their comfort zone and develop the reflective and higher order thinking required of strategic decision makers in an uncertain world.
