         Accounting is the primary channel for communicating the
         economics of any business. Managers must understand
         the concepts and language of accounting in order to use
         this critical tool effectively for communication, monitoring,
         and resource allocation. This module provides a broad
         view of how accounting contributes to an organisation and
         how managers can make the best use of accounting
         information, accounting records, and systems, and
         accountants as internal resources for the purpose of
         making effective financial decisions. The module also
         includes financial reporting, interpretation and analysis of
         financial statements. This course is designed to help
         students to use accounting based information to aid in
         managerial decision-making. Case study analysis
         combined with written and oral case study presentation will
         be used extensively.                                                     Mr Padachi/Mr Odit
         Fundamental concepts of management information
         systems; managerial and organisational principles and
         concepts relevant to MIS, the value of information for
         decision making; organisational structure of MIS;
         information resource management; managing end-user
         computing.                                                               Ms Mahadeo

         An investigation and analysis of the theoretical and
         analytical tools of economics, with emphasis upon their
         application to business decision problems. The module
         looks at the firm‟s tactical and strategic decision areas and
         includes analysis of pricing policy, demand and cost
         estimation, and the option for longer-term strategic
         development. Other topics include demand theory, market
         structure, price determination, and profit strategies.
         Application of economic methodology to business
         administration procedures will be dealt. Case studies of
         managerial situations will be examined.                                  Mr Seetanah/Mrs Seenarain
The module covers basic theories and applications of
statistics in different functional areas of business. Its aim is
to help students to understand why they are conducting a
specific analysis and how to interpret the statistical output.
The module also provides a practical introduction to the
use of SPSS in statistical analysis. Fundamental
quantitative methods to solve decision problems faced by
managers in business will be analysed. The course
develops two important quantitative skills: 1) identification
of the appropriate methodology for solving the managerial
problem; and 2) clearly and precisely specifying the
interpretation of the analysis produced. As a result of
applying the appropriate methodology and clearly reporting
the interpretation of the analysis, the student can then
recommend a sensible and understandable business
decision.                                                          Mrs Munhurrun/Mr Nowbutsing
