Why Learn Management Accounting?

It is concerned with providing information to managers, that is, people in an organisation who direct and control its operation. Managerial accounting is manager-oriented and provides the essential data with which the organisations are actually run.

However, management accounting and financial accounting are part of the total accounting information system. The content of management accounting system is driven by the needs of the financial accounting system.
