What does a management accountant do?
Officially, management accountants help businesses all over the world manage their finances. But in reality, there’s so much more to it than that. They are business leaders. Innovators. Decision makers. Forecasters. There’s no one industry or role that they work in: you’ll find management accountants in all kinds of companies, public and private, big and small.
Day to day, they interpret financial data, prepare reports and use business knowledge to help management make decisions. They’ll always be looking to the future and figuring out ways to improve things for the company.
In short – they’re pretty important.
