About the course

This course is designed to equip delegates with a basic understanding of management accounting and budgeting and the contribution these can make to effective management.

The course examines in detail the nature and scope of management accounting and the analysis and presentation of budgetary information to assist managers in making decisions. It is highly interactive and participation by course delegates is actively encouraged. Delivery involves the use of a comprehensive specially written manual, lectures, practical exercises, case study material and videos.

MAFNA is part (2 days) of the 4.5 day Success in Financial Management course.
