Introduction to Management Accounting (Horngren et al), is commonly utilised to support the ''Management Accounting'' module of a number of MBA programmes. As a text, it provides excellent detail in the following areas:
- Focus on Decision Making
- Accounting For Planning and Control
- Captial Budgeting
- Product Costing
- Basic Financial Accounting
The text is oriented towards providing the reader with an understanding of the principles and practices around the areas listed above; giving the reader a working knowledge of how the elements taught can be applied to their working lives in practice. There are many exercises included in the book which help to consolidate learning through example.
In addition, the thirteenth edition of the book includes additional ethics sections, ethical behaviour being something which is becoming more and more important in the workplace as time passes.
This book represents an excellent investment for the management accountant and MBA student, as well as those at work seeking to understand more about exactly what the ''bean counters'' get up to in the back office.
