Course Summary

This course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation attained by fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. It recognises our focus on excellence in all areas. There is considerable crossover between accounting and business management, and an understanding of both fields will serve you well. From an accounting point of view, it’s important to have a good understanding of various aspects of a business, while business managers can benefit from a background in accounting to ensure their decisions are financially viable.Distinct features of this course include: accreditations from global industry-leading financial associations, exemptions for accountancy qualifications, the flexibility to change pathways after year one, the opportunity to study abroad at one of our international partner institutions, and the option to complete a 30-week placement anywhere in the world. During the second and final year of the course, you have a number of option units to choose from, allowing you to further tailor your studies to your aspirations.Within six months of completing their course, 90% of our students are in work or further study (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education, 2018).Our students are now working as accountants, financial advisors, account managers, tax consultants, finance executives, mortgage advisors and management accountants in companies such as PriceWaterHouseCoopers, JP Morgan, IBM, Disney, Adidas UK Ltd, Apple, Bank of New York Mellon, BMW, British Airways and HMRC.Pathways: BA (Hons) Accounting & Business; BA (Hons) Accounting & Finance; BA (Hons) Economics; BA (Hons) Finance & Business; BA (Hons) Finance & Economics; MAccFinn (Hons) Accounting & Finance. Each of the courses in this framework will give you those vital core skills, as well as offering more specialist options depending on the pathway you choose to pursue. All courses' first year units are the same, allowing you the flexibility to transfer to another pathway at the end of the first year if you wish. This keeps your career options open and enables you to make more informed choices.
