Its audience includes finance and accounting executives and managers, CPAs and consultants, and MBA and EMBA students and faculty interested in managerial accounting and financial management. It adds a field of parallel interest to the well-established field of cost management. The topic is important as individuals in the above-mentioned audience need to analyze revenue management decisions from an accounting/finance perspective.
