Content
Management accounting is about making better business decisions, the practical understanding of key drivers for adding value to a business, and how these are tied to the decision-making process. It's about helping people run their businesses more efficiently and effectively in order to achieve the desired outcomes such as increasing returns or delivering improved services.

Management Accounting and Applied Finance includes two integrated case studies and other practical examples and activities that will give you the skills and knowledge to identify, analyse, interpret and communicate information to help an organisation manage its resources and achieve strategic goals.
