C4 - Fundamentals of Business Economics

http://www.bpp.com/learning-materials/our-products/accounting--finance/cima-new-
syllabus/cima-c4.aspx

Paper C4 'Fundamentals of Business Economics' introduces the basic economic and


financial concepts which management accountants need to know for their roles. It
looks at the way individual organisations decide how to allocate resources
(microeconomics) as well as looking at overall economic activity and economic
policies (macroeconomics). Organisations and economies both need finance, and the
syllabus reflects this by looking at the role of financial institutions and markets
in providing finance.

The syllabus is split into four areas:

* The goals and decisions of organisations


* The market system and the competitive process
* The financial system
* The macroeconomic context of business
