    Many university graduates aim to become managers, either of their own business, or as part of the management team of other entities. A critical attribute of management is the ability to incorporate financial and non-financial data in a range of decisions, such as pricing products, setting budgets, and evaluating performance.

    However, the majority of these people have not studied accounting and information systems. This unit aims to address this gap by showing you how to identify, obtain, manipulate and analyse data to make informed business decisions.

    This unit is co-taught with 11009 Business Decision Making.
