The study of accounting business and management is important to organisations everywhere, and in particular the ability to communicate to a variety of audiences is highly valued. The calculations, techniques and frameworks we learn need to be applied in a context – the calculations need to be explained to clients, government and regulators need to be persuaded to appreciate the issues they might be passing judgement on. Furthermore, research and experience from a variety of business and management case might yield valuable insights into innovation in accounting, finance and strategy etc.
