Management Control Systems - ACCG728

This unit focuses on special topics concerned with the design and operation of Management Control Systems (MCS). Topics range from control techniques and the behavioural implications of those techniques, to contingent influences on MCS design. Topics are chosen to encourage students to explore contemporary facets of MCS, and to develop skills in analysis and investigation that are necessary and that are required to undertake more advanced research. A sound understanding of extant and current MCS research is a requirement for any advanced study of control theory, thus research findings will be used to underpin management control theories.
