How managerial economics differs from economics, accountancy and its relationship with
management. (Maximum of FIVE sentences only)
Managerial economics is the combination of economic theory or concepts with the managerial
practice and it is just a “special branch” of “economics” guiding managers in making managerial
decisions for an entity. Economics differs from managerial economics in a way that it deals with how
humans make decisions in the face of scarcity and this is the foundation of those economic concepts
and theory use in managerial economics or use by managers in decision making. On the other hand,
accountancy or accounting differs from managerial economics in a sense that accountancy is a
profession wherein accountants are responsible in recording, analyzing and reporting financial
information about the enterprise in making decisions while managerial economics helps managers
make decisions by applying the economic theories or concepts. Economists are concerned with the bigpicture trends that drive money while accountants tracks the inflow and outflow of money. Moreover,
“management” is one of the “nature” of managerial economics that is a purposive process meaning
there is always a purpose or objective when managers guide, lead, and control the whole organization
with the application of economic theories and by this a business will be successful.
