This is the first journal I have ever worked on since taking the EMBA program at UiTM Shah Alam. I am applying for admission to the Executive Master in Business Administration program because I wish to further develop my career in my current work organization. Writing about myself, my experience during the past five weeks on Managerial Accounting course in a journal, has been a far different experience compared to doing a usual essay in the past.

In particular, I am interested in factors that affect the company performance of a business concerned, and the manner in which of decision making concepts, long-term business strategies, distribution network, information needs and standard systems. In order to gain an appreciation of these and related issues, it is essential for me to have a strong grounding of the subjects given and one of it is Managerial Accounting.

I believe that the EMBA program in Business Administration would be invaluable in helping me achieve these objectives. It would enable me to channel my quantitative and conceptual skills in analysing business issues and would open up new avenues in exploration.

It has been a time consuming process needing much focus and commitment. At first, I thought everything would be straight forward and that I could manage my time, but it was hard to juggle between my work and family commitments. In order to prioritise this ACC720 course, I took a short period of time out from work and held back from family and friends events.

To keep myself on track I constructed action plans. As it is a short period of time for every subject, at the beginning of each week I would make a daily plan of what I hoped to achieve and how I would do it. I then ticked off each task as achieved. This helped me achieve smaller goals within the assignments, test and group project. So throughout this process I have learnt to be self-disciplined, organised and become better at time management. These are clearly needed for future employment....
