From the Paper:

"Accounting within the business sphere is largely divided into two separate divisions: financial and managerial accountants. The presence of financial accountants and management accountants in most large corporations today is a testament to the complexity of the global economy, the legal and governance rules an entity must operate under, and the sheer amount of information the profession must deal with on a daily basis. The importance of accounting as a basic function of business activity cannot be overstated."
