AYN506 Accounting for Strategic Decision Making

As strategic business partners who use financial and managerial skills and accounting information for strategy implementation, planning, and control, management accountants are expected to be capable applying analytical skills to convince CEOs and CFOs of their ideas' relevance and feasibility. Using case studies, contemporary issues and documented real-life practices, this unit aims to provide students with a systematic, comprehensive framework for analysing organisational problems as well as helping students to develop a better understanding of the role of management accounting in organisational performance. It also provides deeper understanding of how management accounting systems can be designed and will enable students to design and evaluate such systems. The unit forms a core component of the Master of Business accountancy major and further familiarises students with the dynamism of contemporary accounting technologies and associated practices.
