The first purpose is generally described as financial accounting, and the second and third as management accounting. This course introduces students to financial and managerial use of accounting information systems and concepts for use by investors outside the firm and managers within the firm. The basic objective is to allow business professionals to read, understand, and use accounting information to make better decisions on the job.
