  • Overview

    This is the second of three undergraduate units in cost and management accounting and is necessary for ICAA, CPA and NIA membership. The unit focuses on strategies, cost/customer/supplier management, performance measurement systems, transfer pricing, capital expenditure analysis, capacity management, motivation, and sustainability from a management accounting perspective. By the end of this unit students should be able to propose coherent strategies and employ various approaches to measuring and managing organisational performance. In addition, students should be able to apply appropriate management accounting technologies to effectively and efficiently manage suppliers, customers, costs and quality to support organisational strategies. These outcomes contribute to the development of critical, analytical and integrative thinking and the ability to be aware of environmental and social impacts of organisational decision making.
