I am working on putting this site together at the moment, so some of the pages don’t have all the information on them yet – that will all change though.

Take a look at the associated Facebook page – Management Accounting Info https://www.facebook.com/manaccinfo – where there are regular posts of material relevant to the study of Management Accounting.

Introducing Jonathan

I am a qualified accountant (ACCA) and researcher (MSc. Accounting) and have been working in universities since 2000 as a Management Accounting specialist.

Management Accounting is all about the efficient operation of businesses and I use my knowledge to help businesses increase their profits by building income and reducing costs. I have helped many small businesses and student enterprises and currently additionally work with the Enterprise Unit at London South Bank University.

I have taught Management Accounting to undergraduate and postgraduate students (Birkbeck College, Middlesex University and principally London South Bank University) to understand the issues and achieve their qualifications.

Employability.

I strongly believe that going to university is about developing your ability to think and is not specifically about getting a particular job. Might sound strange when I teach on an Accounting degree, but I studied Zoology with no expectation of ever using it directly in employment – it is my interest, not my profession.

Employers feel that graduates often lack ’employability skills’. Universities try to give you the opportunity to develop these too, but really, it is up to you.

Understanding the context of your subject will help make your knowledge more relevant which is why I publish this website and Facebook posts. If you know the techniques and why and when they would be used, you will be better able to benefit from your degree.
