Content

This unit aims to develop an understanding of how financial reports and other relevant information is used to support decision-making in and about organisations. It is designed to cater for students who do not necessarily have extensive prior business experience and therefore emphasises the business context and relates ideas to basic business transactions and other business functions and financial events. It also emphasises the environment within which businesses operate and discusses the use of important economic information that is normally beyond financial statements.
