This subject focuses on the effective use of management accounting information for planning and control decisions in business. Students will learn how different corporate and business strategies affect the design of formal systems used to plan and control the firm's performance. The instructional approach used in this subject blends theory with practice to facilitate student insight into the complex issues impacting the use and application of accounting information. The subject also links the more quantitative aspects of cost management and responsibility accounting with the more qualitative aspects of behaviour to highlight systems design and information use issues.
