In this Business session, James Armes, Associate Professor in Accounting in the Norwich Business School at UEA, will run an interactive skills and insight workshop for students on How Management Accountants Help Business make Short Term Decisions and Assess Risk.

This will be an interactive session that allows students to understand the factors that go into making any financial decision. We will work through a couple of case studies (one personal, one from business) that will draw out the theory of decision making in an organisational context.

You will be able to apply what you learn to all financial decisions you will face in the future.


The session will develop skills and approaches to support students in their Business studies and future aspirations.
