“Management Accounting and Control” is a new textbook in English language covering concepts and instruments of management accounting at an introductory level.

How does this book differ from other publications targeting management students? “Of course, there is a wealth of management accounting textbooks in English and there are German textbooks on European/German management accounting practices. What is unique about our book is that it combines the best of both worlds – the structured approach of German textbooks on the one side and the practical focus as well as didactic strengths of US-American books on the other side”, says author Prof. Dr. Michel Charifzadeh (ESB Business School).

Co-author Prof. Dr. Andreas Taschner adds: “In a global business environment, English has become an everyday working language. Which is why at ESB Business School we do not only offer courses in Business English, but also teach subjects like management accounting in English. However, the classical US-focused textbooks are partly incomplete or incompatible with the Central European way of teaching management accounting and control. Therefore, we decided to write a book by ourselves.”
