Accounting and Finance for Managers is specifically designed for the needs of MBA, EMBA and MA Business and Management students.

For lecturers, the book begins with an indication of how the course material can be tailored to individual needs and divided over different periods of time.
As well as providing coverage of basic bookkeeping, readers will learn how to understand financial statements and grasp underlying theory, interpret a cash budget and identify potential problems, recognise appropriate pricing strategies to fit different markets and products/services, and incorporate financial evaluation into operational decision making and problem solving.

Managers seeking to improve analytical skills with new accounting and finance tools will find this handbook emphasizes learning through example, and teaches the basics of accounting from how to prepare a set of basic financial statements to interpreting profit, cash budgets, pricing strategies to suit different kinds of markets, and more. Each chapter is paired to course structures so the book can be used as a classroom text, and each melds theory with real-world business applications for maximum effect. It's rare to find a title suitable for self study and classroom learning alike: this book fits the bill, on both.
