Overview

Given the pervasive nature of Accounting Information Systems and Technology, accountants are increasingly expected to be competent in understanding the business processes and information systems used in organisations.

First, you will develop knowledge in accounting systems and business processes, basic system documentation tools, database management, fraud, appropriate internal controls, and approaches to implementing Accounting Information Systems in organisations. Second, you will develop technical competence in using productivity tools (such as MS Excel) and accounting software.
