Objective of this assignment
The objective is to place the student in the position of a management accounting role within a business and to provide support to the General Manager of Sales and Marketing in cost analysis and in customer profitability. This is achieved through the use of information available from the public domain, combined with fictitious information, which reflects the information that would be available to a management accountant. Key parts of the assignment require analysis of the information provided, summarising and communicating to a specific audience. Some questions are open-ended to allow a variety of aspects to be investigated from the annual report and additional information. This analysis is also to be supported by academic literature to draw a link between academic theory and the practice of business. Completion of this assignment will give students an insight into skill requirements and responsibilities of a management accountant.
