Overview

Sustainable development depends on managers' capability to make decisions appropriately and share values with employees, and consequently create social wealth. Management accounting contributes to the realization of corporate mission by supporting managers' decision-making.

However, most small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Japan do not implement management accounting enough, and the number of firms that have high capability to implement management accounting is also limited. The reasons are attributed to the fact that management accountants have not been established as a professional, and the importance of management accounting is not sufficiently recognized in Japan.

Then, in this center, we conduct some research projects about management accounting and control systems and develop education programs for management accountants who supports managers.
