The purpose of the module is i) to provide an introduction to core accounting principles for financial reporting, financial analysis, and cost and budget management and decision making principles, and ii) to apply those principles applications to organisations. The module has two strands of focus: Financial Accounting, and Cost/Management Accounting. The former is concerned with accounting for financial activities and the subsequent construction and ratio analysis of key financial statements for financial reporting, including their inherent issues. The latter strand focuses on the internal activities of a business and associated operational information: determining the cost of products, services and activities, planning and control through budgeting, and decision making using CVP analyses.
