Financial Accounting

As mentioned above, accounting is divided into several sub categories, each with their own specific set of goals and procedures.


Financial accounting is concerned mainly with collecting and analysing financial data, from within a particular organisation, in order to present to external stakeholders, such as investors or to the government in the form of tax returns.


Financial accountants rely on bookkeepers, who collect the majority of the financial data. The data is then analysed and submitted to management in order to serve as a written record of the financial position of the company.

Management Accounting

Another area within the field of accounting is management accounting. In this career field, accounting takes a backseat to a strong management focus. The management accountant uses data collected from within the company, both financial and otherwise, in order to streamline the business process. This data is then analysed and presented to management who will in turn, work with the management accountants in created policies, plans and strategies for the future.


Professionals with management accounting training hold some of the highest grossing jobs in the business world today. Many of the courses offered at College SA are geared toward training the student in the field of management accounting, by offering course from their academic partner, CIMA
