Accounting & Financial Management

Author: John Parkinson Ph.D., Professor of Accounting, York University
Instructor: Mike Cornacchia

Full Course Description | Register for selected course(s) | Access your course

Financial and management accounting knowledge is necessary to enable a Human Resource Manager (HRM) to do her/his job effectively. In some cases, where the HRM is expected to carry out the activity herself, a detailed knowledge is required. This would be the case, for example, in respect of the preparation of operating budgets for her area of responsibility, and the interpretation of control information based on those budgets. In other cases the HRM is expected to have a working understanding of the challenges face by her fellow members of the management team, where a familiarity with the concepts is more important than detailed knowledge. This would be the case, for example, in respect of the preparation of the income statement and balance sheet for external users.

In this online credit course, you will access multimedia lectures, participate in a discussion board, submit assignments and write a final exam, all online. See the course outline for full details.

Organizational behaviour is the study of how people behave both individually and within informal and formal groups.
