Management accounting is critical to decision-making within businesses and organisations, and this module will introduce you to advanced techniques and tools used in the field.

You'll analyse the impact of new technologies on the organisational roles of management accounting and discuss and analyse their potential implications on management accounting and managerial practices.

Furthermore, you'll discuss relevant debates in contemporary management accounting literature, assessing how these can inform managerial control and decision-making practices within businesses.
