This week saw me return to the Deakin University Warrnambool campus and it’s starting to feel like home again.
I attended Deakin University as a student all the way back in 1993 – 1995 where I obtained my Bachelor of Commerce. I had always intended to go to the Warrnambool Institute of Advanced Education, it just happened that WIAE had changed to Deakin by the time I got there!
In 1st trimester this year I was invited to lecture and present tutorials (actually I think they are called seminars these days), for the first year subject “Accounting for Decision Making”, and this trimester I am back for the second year subject “Management Accounting”.
You might be thinking that accounting is accounting – it deals with numbers and that is all, but actually there is more to accounting than you might be aware of.
Management accounting focuses on a businesses ability to effectively use the resources it has available. It is management accounting that provides both financial and non-financial information so that managers can plan, control and make decisions effectively.
So for the next three months you can call me Professor Bron!
