Programme Structure

Accounting and Management Control Systems Achieving good management control - which includes utilising an organisation?s management accounting systems - is a vital element in ?successful? entities. There have been a number of recent instances where an organisation?s management (accounting) controls have proved to be ?weak? and this has had a detrimental impact on the company, for example: Barings Bank, Enron, World-Com, Farepak, Northern Rock, XL.Com, Lehman Bros, Woolworths, Setanta, BP and Goldtrail-Sun4U-Kiss Flights.Achieving effective control in today?s complex and volatile economic environment, however, means that management accountants are faced by some considerable challenges - and also, it can be argued, by some significant opportunities, too (see Poundland, for example).
