In this blog, we will assist you with some effective tips which you should follow in your EIS & SM preparation. We will also highlight some important topics of this crucial subject of CA Intermediate Group 2.

Why Study EIS & SM?

We need to understand that the traditional role of a Chartered Accountant, which was restricted to accounting and auditing, has now changed drastically. There has been a remarkable shift towards strategic decision-making and entrepreneurial roles that add value beyond traditional financial reporting. CAs who want to reach high in the corporate ladder need to be sound in the concepts and principles of Strategic Management.

With significant developments in Information Technology, the budding CAs need to inculcate the requisite IT skill set which is necessary for achieving professional competence. A deep understanding of EIS & SM is therefore crucial to understand the fundamental concepts of Information Systems & Business Process Flows, E-Commerce & M-Commerce transactions, Core Banking Systems, and Financial and Accounting Systems.
