1 Unit information form (UIF) The UIF provides essential information to students, staff teams and others on a particular unit. Please refer to the University s Guidance notes on Unit Information Forms before completing the details below UIF13/14 SECTION 1 - Changes made to Section 1 of the UIF will require Faculty level approval. If substantial changes to Units/Courses are required, consult with Sub Dean (Quality Enhancement) for advice Unit Name Management Accounting Unit Code AAF006-2 Level 5 Credit Value 30 Location of Delivery University Square (Luton) and Bedford This unit builds on the subjects introduced at level 4 but will represent a change in direction from the philosophy of study experienced in Year 1. The approach used will represent a focus towards the skills and competences needed by the accounting professional rather than a generalist business manager. This unit is recognised by the ACCA for exemption purposes and is designed to meet those needs. Summary/Overview Management Accounting is an internal information system within organisations that provides financial and other information to managers for the purpose of decision making, planning and control. As a management information system the discipline benefits from an approach integrated with planning and decision making for marketing and human resource management for example. Management Accounting is about maximizing long term company performance through optimal product/service pricing coupled with efficient and effective resource utilization. Budgeting and budgetary control are fundamental to the measurement and achievement of this aim, but much analysis in Management Accounting is performed as ad hoc exercises, designed to identify and evaluate decision variables relevant to particular performance issues. The approach to delivery will therefore be to encourage technical excellence in management accounting but also the understanding and application of management accounting information, and the challenging of the utility of that information. Aims To enable students to understand how relevant accounting information can be harnessed to assist management decisions. This will involve students identifying relevant factors, performing complex analyses and providing comprehensive advice to management for decision purposes. To develop the Management Accounting skills acquired at level 4

2 to a higher level by the introduction of new techniques and scenarios. Core Learning Outcomes To develop the skills necessary to collect, analyse, prepare and present information necessary for planning, decision making and control in an organisation. To introduce the techniques necessary for analysis of data and to enable the selection of appropriate techniques for particular problems. To enable the appreciation of the strengths and weaknesses of particular techniques Learning Outcomes On completion of this unit you should be able to: Assessment Criteria To achieve the learning outcome you must demonstrate the ability to: 1 2 Utilise the cost of a cost object for a range of purposes using data from different cost and management accounting systems. Analyse relevant data to enable short term business decisions to be made and evaluate and recommend strategies to deal with the sensitivity of the data. Identify the problems associated with material cost attribution and apply material cost data for purposes of stock valuation. Identify data appropriate for labour cost attribution and calculate the labour cost of a product or service. From given information, collect, allocate, apportion and absorb the costs of overheads for a unit of activity; Analyse the uses of calculated costs of the above cost elements Compare and contrast the results of absorption and marginal costing systems, for products and processes Collate and analyse the differences between fixed and variable costs. Use an interpretation of fixed and variable cost to assess a product or service break-even point. Recommend strategies to improve profitability using fixed and various cost data Recognise the sensitivity to change of various elements of financial model Assess relevant and opportunity costs Assess the impact of capacity constraints Select, apply and interpret a range of optimization techniques in order assist efficiency decisions in organisations.

3 Design and utilise budgets which enable control by feedback and recognising the behavioural implications of control. Analyse and interpret variance analysis data for the control of organisations. Establish an Activity Based Costing system which enables cause and effect allocations. Measure company performance using financial and non-financial indicators. Prepare profit budgets from given data Use budget information to make planning decisions Evaluate the contribution to good management of the budgeting process. Analyse the effect on behaviour of the budgeting process By use of appropriate examples, evaluate alternatives to the budgeting process. From given information; Compute and interpret variances for materials, labour and overhead costs Analyse the effect of profitability of a range of variances Evaluate the inter-relationship of variances Compute and assess the role of planning and operational variances Assess the role of ABC in resource allocation. Apply ABC techniques to resource allocation problems and cases. Interpret ABC information to enable efficiency improvements to organisations Present findings in written reports. Apply and interpret financial indicators to divisions within an organisation. Assess the ethical challenges implicit in financial indicators. Develop, apply and interpret a Balanced Scorecard for an organisation SECTION 2 - Any changes made to Section 2 of the UIF will normally require Faculty level approval Period of delivery Pre-requisites/Restrictions Student Activity Approach to Learning Year 2 (One academic year) Principles of Accounting / Introduction to Accounting and Finance or equivalent Activity Notional Learning Hours Lectures 48 Seminars/tutorials 21 Workshops 3 Assessment 30 e-learning 30 Self-directed study 156 Group work 12 Total 300 Each topic will be introduced by a lecture to provide information and ideas, and to raise questions and promote discussion. Lectures will not normally last longer than one hour, and the remainder of each two hour session will be taken up with

4 exercises, tests and case study analysis. Part way through the first term the seminar will be replaced by a computer workshop for three weeks. This will introduce the assignment that will require the creation of a financial model by spread sheet. At this level, students do find difficulty with technique but results through guided practice with feedback on a weekly basis. All the elements of the University of Bedfordshire s CRe8 strategy are embedded within this approach to learning: Meaningful- Management accounting is about producing and presenting relevant information according to the needs of the particular situation a business is facing. The setting of plans and budgets are good examples of the practical nature of management accounting. Active- Seminar sessions will usually involve the working of exercises to give students more practice and will be based on the previous weeks lecture. This will necessitate student preparation for the discussion of a management accounting case problem. These are very important, as the assessments for this unit are largely practical and require such skills. Part way through the first term the seminar will be replaced by a computer workshop for three weeks. This will introduce the assignment that will require the creation of a financial model by spreadsheet. Reflective- A major part of the process of producing, assessing and reviewing management accounting information is reflection upon the relevance of the information to the needs of the user. This develops an ability to think and reflect in a logical and useful way. Challenging- Much of the complex and detailed techniques and many of the principles involved will challenge students ability to learn and apply very different approaches to those they may have been accustomed to. The principles of Marginal costing are but one such example. Collaborative- Seminar discussions, tutor feedback and group investigation and presentation will all contribute to student learning in a collaborative and supported way. Communication To help with the development of this you will:- Produce a report indicating your key recommendations. The report will be designed to aid the understanding of a manager in an organisation without financial skills; Be expected to engage in discussion in seminars about exercises and the issues they raise. Skills Development Information Literacy To help with the development of this you will:- Demonstrate a grasp of some of the complex and specialist terminology inherent in the discipline. In the computer workshops, you will construct financial models to aid decision-making. These will be used in the report. Research and Evaluation To help with the development of this you will:-

5 Investigate and analyse the accounts and other published material of a range of international companies. Creativity and Critical Thinking To help with the development of this you will:- Choose appropriate techniques or combinations of techniques to solve particular problems and reflect on the utility of the information outcomes. Practice (formative) exercises will be used extensively to develop and assess your grasp of accounting principles and concepts and your ability to present findings in a formal report. In keeping with the requirements of the professional accounting bodies, marked (summative) assessment will form 60% of assessment. This assessment will be a 3-hour closed book examination which will lead towards capturing the exemption of ACCA paper F5. Assessment Strategy You will also be required to undertake a case study in management or strategic management accounting. This assessment will begin as a group investigation and presentation but will culminate in an individual analytical report. This will form 40% of the assessment weighting and will be no more than 4,000 words in length. The requirement to present an analytical report gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your ability to engage with vast quantities of data and information from a wide range of sources and make value judgements as to their relevance for inclusion in a formal report.

9 UNIVERSITY OF BEDFORDSHIRE Annex to Unit the Information Form Teaching schedule with activity hours for the KIS Academic Year This annex to the UIF should be used to record actual teaching and learning activity hours at unit level for each UoB sub-category of teaching and learning activity. UoB sub-categories of teaching and learning have been specified to relate directly to the Key Information Set (KIS) categories of scheduled, guided independent and placement learning. The information provided will be used to determine the total hours associated with each KIS category for each unit of UoB courses required to have a Key Information Set and to provide information to the time-tabling department. Guidance on the definition of the sub-categories and the specification of the associated hours can be found in the guidance paper: KIS arrangements relating to Teaching and Assessment published by the CLE. It is important that the hours accurately reflect the actual time delivered and that Faculties can evidence the time delivered for auditing purposes. Departments should complete the form in full and attach to the associated UIF. SECTION A: Unit information Unit name Unit code Management Accounting AAF006-2 Level 5 Credit value 30

10 SECTION B: Teaching schedule A 30 credit unit will be expected to have 24 teaching weeks, if offered over a year (or equivalent if offered in a different pattern), with one revision week prior to each examination period. Other credit-weightings will be pro-rata. Each block represents one hour of timetabled activity. The timetabled hours per week for each category should be included. So if there are two one hour lectures per week then 2 should be indicated. UoB sub-category of teaching and learning activity Week(s) e.g. 1-5 if there is no change in teaching pattern over Total that period; if there is a gap Scheduled SL Lecture SS Seminar SP Practical classes and workshops 3 3 SE Scheduled on-line activities Guided GR Directed reading and research GFA Formative assessment GOH Office hours Independent IR Unguided reading from defined reading lists IA Assessment preparation UoB sub-category of teaching and learning activity Week(s) Total Scheduled 1/13 2/14 3/15 4/16 5/17 6/18 7/19 8/20 9/21 10/2 2 11/2 3 12/2 4 SL Lecture SS Seminar SE Scheduled on-line activities Guided GR Directed reading and research GFA Formative assessment GG Group work (out of scheduled time) GA Guided assessment GOH Office hours Independent IR Unguided reading from defined reading lists IA Assessment preparation May include the reading of specified articles or a specified number of articles/books etc from a provided list 2 May include the reading of specified articles or a specified number of articles/books etc from a provided list

11 Summary Scheduled Guided independent Placement/Other Guided Independent Autonomous Total Total Hours C Percentage 34% 46% 20% 0% 100% Notes For most units total hours (A plus B) must relate to the overall credit value of the unit (1 credit = 10 notional hours) Where there are placements etc. then the total hours (A plus B plus C) will normally exceed that associated with the credit value of the unit Ranges must not be used The schedule is effectively our contractual arrangement with students. It is important that it is delivered.
