Strategic management accounting program offers comprehensive coverage of key field areas

  1. 1. Strategic Management Accounting Program Offers Comprehensive Coverage of Key Field Areas While the duties of accounting supervisors, accounting managers, assistant controllers, controllers and business analysts all vary there are some commonalities. All of these professionals must have the know-how to perform accounting duties, benefits administration, and audit, manage processes, report research results, develop budgets, track budget expenses, navigate financial software, analyze information, and more. These professionals may launch careers in financial institutions, government offices, public accounting firms, manufacturing industries, service industries, small business and through self-employment. Centennial College offers a two-semester Strategic Management in Accounting program that is open to anyone who has completed a three-year college diploma or university degree in accounting as well as anyone who has a two-year college diploma or a partial university degree (75 per cent complete) in accounting, and who has a minimum of two years work experience relevant to this program. Applicants may be required to provide proof of English proficiency. The offering is facilitated out of Centennial College’s Progress Campus, which is centrally located and houses other programs from the School of Business. This is important, as students are able to network with peers from offerings that are similar to theirs. Additionally, Progress campus houses modern computer labs that feature software that is relevant to this field. As such, students gain hands-on exposure to the latest technology applications in the area of management information systems, including ERP systems. Hands-on training is also presented to students through extensive use of case studies, simulations as well as leading-edge managerial and leadership practices of the best companies in the world. Students are guided through their learning by a team of professors with strong academic backgrounds, extensive business and management experience. While other strategic management programs may focus on business or accounting, this program balances both perfectly. The program provides rigorous study of financial accounting, managerial accounting, taxation and auditing, and includes comprehensive coverage of all the key areas of management. Specific courses in this offering include: Accounting Theory and Policy (standards such as reserve recognition, management discussion and analysis, employee stock options, post employment benefits, financial instruments, ceiling tests, hedge accounting and comprehensive income are critically evaluated); Advanced Taxation (focuses on compliance with the requirements of the Income Tax Act for Canadian resident corporations with specific emphasis placed on the decisions to be made by the owner/manager of a Canadian controlled private corporation); Advanced Managerial Accounting (covers relevant costing, capital budgeting, transfer pricing, balanced scorecard, inventory management, variance and profitability analysis, performance measurement and compensation, and the application of management accounting concepts and techniques to support business decision making); and others such as Operations Management for Products & Services, Information Systems for Business Management, Crafting and Executing Strategy and Contemporary Organizational Behavior.
