By studying the Management Accounting programme offered by The Open University UK, you will gain an applied knowledge and understanding of the purpose, principles and scope of management accounting. The module is designed for anyone interested in the role of management accounting in financial management, but is particularly suitable if you wish to qualify as a professional accountant.
This module will help you apply your knowledge and understanding of management accounting accurately to a range of issues, questions and problems. You will use established techniques to evaluate and interpret management accounting in a range of contexts. You will learn how to describe, apply, analyse and synthesise management theory, and economic theory and practice in relation to business management.
During the module you will examine different approaches to issues and problems in management accounting. You will explore how to communicate management accounting information effectively and appropriately. Spreadsheets, information and communication technologies, and fundamental business mathematics are some of the methods you will use.
You will develop the general practical and professional skills of management accounting and increase your awareness of relevant ethical issues for management accountants. You will also come to recognise how the skills and knowledge gained in a management accounting course can be used for personal and career goals.
You will have a tutor who will help you with the study material and mark and comment on your written work, and whom you can ask for advice and guidance. There will also be four tutorials and one day school which you are strongly encouraged to attend. Where tutorials and day schools are held depends on the distribution of students taking each module.
