In the business world it is essential to develop a thorough understanding of financial and management accounting fundamentals. Therefore a knowledge of the practical and functional nature of business decisions from the perspective of financial accounting; managerial costing and budgetary policies; investing; and financing of business operations provides the basis on which more advanced business acumen and skills are developed. This course provides an introduction to the tools managers need to analyse financial information and to inform business decision making.
This course introduces students to the world of accounting. Designed to provide a solid foundation for further study in both accounting and non-accounting disciplines, the course provides a logical introduction to the accounting environment and to the common financial accounting (external) reports and management accounting (internal) tools used for decision making purposes.
