A solid understanding of the language of accounting and financial information is essential for all managers – as is an understanding of the impact of accounting policies on the investing, financing, and operating activities of an organization.

The study of accounting topics and corporate finance allows managers and executives to effectively incorporate financial information into their decision-making process. It is also helpful in spotting ‘creative’ accounting techniques – an issue that has had significant impacts on the business world in recent years.
