Managerial Accounting Specialty

The managerial accounting specialty is designed for those individuals who see their career directed toward being the controller or chief financial officer of an organization or a management services consultant for a CPA firm. The organization may be a private or public for-profit business, or a not-for-profit entity such as a hospital, charity or governmental unit.

The managerial accounting specialty concentrates on developing and reporting accounting information to assist management in determining and achieving the organization’s objectives. The management accountant is an integral part of the management team and, as such, must understand the operations of an organization to assess which financial and non-financial information is necessary to assist management decision-making.
