ACCT71-601: Information Analysis and Systems

Description

The subject is based on the premise that information systems knowledge is essential for creating competitive firms, managing global corporations, adding business value, and providing useful products and services to customers. In addition, the outputs of the systems need to be analysed and modelled to provide users with output that is meaningful to their management tasks. To achieve this latter aim, this subject will introduce students to the quantitative tools that are necessary for day-to-day business needs. The objectives of this subject are to: 1. Provide a basic knowledge of the application of accounting information systems to business disciplines. 2. Provide a basic knowledge of the application of mathematics and statistics to business disciplines. 3. Develop an ability to analyse and interpret data to provide meaningful information to assist in decision-making. 4. Develop an ability to apply modern quantitative tools (Microsoft Excel) to data analysis in a business context. The subject also introduces key concepts in information technology. The overall principle is that the right information-if it is delivered to the right person, in the right fashion, and at the right time-can improve and ensure organisational effectiveness and efficiency.
