This unit will prepare you for postgraduate studies in Business by developing your understanding and effective use of the vocabulary, concepts and regulatory requirements that underlie the preparation of financial reports. Limitations of conventional reporting practices and analysis are noted. The relevance of non-financial information is also considered. Areas of management accounting relevant to decision making and possible future directions of accounting are discussed.
