BUACC2613/Management Accounting 1
Please go to your Moodle site and you will find 6 papers on Budgeting.
Write an essay that critically reviews any five of these papers. (2500 words)
? A critical review requires you to summarise and evaluate each paper.
? It requires you to read the selected paper thoroughly. It also requires you to read other related papers/texts so that you can evaluate the selected paper.
? To be critical does not mean to criticise in a negative way. It requires you to question the information and opinions and present your evaluation of the issues raised in the paper
? Evaluation means presenting the strengths and weaknesses of a paper.
? Overall, writing a critical review involves analysis and evaluation.

? This is a group-assignment. Each group needs to have 2 to 3 members in it. Please organise yourselves into groups.
? Please make sure that names and ID numbers of all group members are stated on the cover sheet of your submission.
As this is a group assignment, each member of your group is awarded the same mark. Working in groups has its pros and cons. I am sure that you will hold constructive group discussions. In case of any disagreements, you will be able to resolve them in a reasonable way. There will be times when you may have to agree to disagree with each other.
Invariably different group members bring different skills to a project; it is up to you to make the best of it. I believe one can learn a lot by discussing the issues with one?s colleagues.
If you find your group members are ?not pulling their weight? or there are problems with any member?s commitment, then please try to resolve those issues amongst yourselves. Open and honest communication always helps.
If you are unable to resolve these issues, you are most welcome to see me and we will try to sort out the problems together. Do this as soon as possible and certainly before the due date.
For some reason, if you do not wish to work in a group, please let us know.
