Global Strategy and Leadership BFA745

Launceston

Introduction

Global Strategy and Leadership consolidates and builds on the learnings candidates have gained in prior units. In the increasingly complex business environment in which organisations operate, characterised by change, uncertainty and escalating competition, the disciplines of strategy and leadership have become critical to successful organisational performance.

The aim of this unit is to link the knowledge of management and financial accounting to the concepts of strategy and leadership. Accountants use a variety of technical information to make decisions for the future of the business within an ethical framework of operation. This subject shows that accounting information, ethics, strategy and leadership are applicable to accountants working throughout the world in diverse organisations. Students who have studied Strategic Management Accounting will note a number of other concepts that are expanded upon in this subject, including strategic analysis, performance measurement and the value chain. The international focus of this subject acknowledges the importance of the reporting requirements under the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs).
