The aim of the seminar is to enable
students to develop critical thinking skills and to enable them to apply
financial and managerial accounting techniques to become better managers. It
will attempt to enable the students to use accounting and financial information
for the purpose of planning, controlling, reporting and decision making.
emphasis of the seminar is interpretation, rather than the construction,
of accounting information.
Therefore, the intention of this seminar is NOT to train students to become
accountants, but to supplement their previous education and expertise so that
they understand, analyse, and discuss accounting information in a work
environment to make well-reasoned decisions, manage performance better, and
build strong business cases for their departments.
After completing the seminar, the student should be
able to apply accounting information to enhance the quantitative as well as
qualitative aspects of decision making in all areas of business.
