What does a management accountant do?
Officially, management accountants help businesses worldwide manage their finances. But, in reality, there’s so much more to it. They are business leaders, innovators, decision-makers and forecasters. They don’t work in just one industry or role. 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’re always looking to the future and figuring out ways to improve things for the company.
In short — they’re pretty important.
