Management accounting is the numerical analysis of management problems. This should not be confused with financial accounting as the two disciplines have little in common. Management accounting considers both financial and non-financial numbers related to management concerns such as risk, quality, costs, return on investment and productivity. The following are common examples of management accounting.
Cost of quality
Cost of risk
Net present value
Return on investment
Total cost of ownership
