About this Unit
Accounting in Context is the first core unit required in the accredited accounting program, but can be included as an elective in other courses. It is designed to provide an overarching context about the purpose and usefulness of accounting information and explain a range of definitions and terms used in accounting and business. Accounting in Context will introduce accounting reports and their interpretation, and explore the impact of policy and measurement methods on accounting information and business decisions. Successful completion of the unit will equip participants with an understanding of the importance of accounting to society and allow them to engage with the next core accounting unit; Financial Accounting Applications.
