This week managerial accounting course was focused on basic managerial accounting concepts and principles. Managerial accounting can be defined as “the process of identifying, measuring, analyzing, interpreting, and communicating information to managers for the pursuit of an organization's goals.” (Wild & Shaw, 2016).

Moreover, we have also discussed the concept of money management.
