Learning Outcomes
This paper is proposed as an essential element of the MProfAcct qualification. As a conversion course to enable students to seek professional accreditation, there is a need to provide a range of required study topics.

This paper focuses on the nature and use of managerial accounting techniques, including management accounting's contribution to sound business decision-making. As well, the paper provides compulsory prerequisite knowledge for subsequent advanced-level papers.

Related undergraduate coverage of the same topics requires at least two full 18-point papers and two semesters. This combines the topics into a single semester paper, especially designed for the MProfAcct. The volume and intensity of study required will present a significant challenge, appropriate for more mature, postgraduate students.
