PROJECTS SPECIAL SESSION - MAS – Management & Accounting Systems


Management and Accounting Systems perform a very important role in the business world. First, these systems provide financial information and instruments to assist businesses in financial planning and management. Second, they also provide businesses with the information required for optimal resource allocation. Third, management and accounting systems assist businesses in measuring and evaluating their performance relative to their objectives and goals. Finally, they help organizations in meeting legal and regulatory obligations.

Researching management and accounting systems enables us to better comprehend and address the challenges and problems that businesses and organizations face. By investigating issues such as financial reporting, budgeting, decision-making, and performance evaluation, researchers can develop solutions and best practices for overcoming these obstacles and enhancing operations as a whole.

There are several areas in which management and accounting systems can be explored. Researchers can identify new and enhanced management and accounting systems, methodologies, and practices that businesses and organizations can use to increase their efficiency. Management and accounting systems are undergoing accelerated technological transformations. Researching these systems enables businesses to remain abreast of the most recent technological developments and their potential effects on financial management. The regulatory environment governing management and accounting practices is in a constant state of evolution. Businesses and organizations can keep abreast of new regulations and compliance requirements through research. Management and accounting system research can fuel innovation and provide businesses with a competitive advantage. By remaining on the cutting edge of knowledge, organizations are able to identify opportunities to differentiate themselves and develop distinctive approaches to financial management.

Researching management and accounting systems is crucial for increasing efficiency, addressing challenges, adapting to technological advances and regulatory changes, driving innovation, and advancing academic knowledge. It enables businesses and organizations to enhance their financial management practices and remain competitive in a business environment that is dynamic and constantly changing.

The special session Management and Accounting Systems of ICOTSS 23 aims to inspire, in a scientific environment, the reflection and presentation of papers in this area.
