This unit serves as the capstone unit for the Accounting Specialisation. The strategic finance function plays a key role in creating value for organisations. It influences decision-making processes and drives performance at both strategic and operational levels. This unit synthesizes, extends and practically applies the knowledge and skills gained over the course of the Master of Commerce program. Primarily building on knowledge in financial and management accounting, this unit introduces contemporary thinking on the finance function. It explores forefront accounting tools to optimise organisational performance in uncertain and ambiguous settings. Recognising that value creation is through strategic partnering and managing individuals and business functions, this unit also seeks to understand inter- and intra-organisational dynamics. This unit also provides an opportunity for students to apply and demonstrate their knowledge and skills in an assessed collaborative real-world case study using digital tools.
