This subject introduces students to the fundamentals of financial management and budgeting in arts organisations. Commencing with an examination of the principal financial reports the subject takes students through the nature and type of transactions undertaken by arts organisations, how these transactions are recorded in financial statements and the steps necessary to prudently manage arts organisations. In the second half of the semester students examine the preparation and evaluation of financial budgets in arts organisations. Specifically students address the budgeting process, budget preparation and the use of financial and performance measurement systems.
Upon successful completion students will have:
A series of assignments equivalent to 3000 words 60% (due throughout the semester), and a 2000 word equivalent take-home examination 40% (during the examination period). Students are required to attend a minimum of 80% (or 10 out of 12) classes in order to qualify to have their written work assessed. Any student who fails to meet this hurdle without valid reason will not be eligible to pass the subject. All required written work must be submitted in order to pass the subject. Essays submitted after the due date without an extension will be penalised 2% per day.
