Management accounting is one of the most fundamental aspects of business administration. This programme covers both management accounting techniques and their application in production companies, service industries, and the public sector. The programme emphasises the role of the management accountant in both a local setting and an international context. The programme objective is to provide students with solid skills that will guide them in their future career as key decision-makers in different types of organisations. We stretch the concept of accounting beyond methods of combining numbers. For us, it is about constructing accounts, being accountable, and holding accountable. Our goal is to enable our students to do accounting for human action.
