Course Summary

Course Overview

If you really enjoy controlling the figures, then Accounting and Finance is the perfect career path for you. Every organisation needs accurate financial information in order to survive and to make decisions about future growth. You'll be able to recognise the trends and explore ways to keep a business afloat, making sure the profits stay up and the expenses stay low.

As it’s a joint degree, this course will benefit those aspiring to be accountants or working in the world of finance. It includes skills that build on investment and commercial banking, insurance, consultancy and financial markets.

Start a secure career with many opportunities

Wherever there is a business, there are accounts that need controlling. Almost every commercial organisation needs skilled financial support. There are companies that deal solely in finance too. These may be investment banks, insurance companies and financial services companies. The final year of this course involves a finance-related dissertation, together with a study of strategy, international finance and taxation. These are designed to ensure that graduates leave Bucks with a wide range of skills that will impress an employer and enable them to secure employment.

Recognition by professional bodies

At Bucks, we can help you work towards your ACCA or CIMA professional qualification. After graduating, you’ll be able to apply for exemption from a number of ACCA papers. We also have some CIMA exemptions. BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance graduates may also be eligible for membership at the Institute of Financial Accountants Associate Level.

What are my career prospects

This course is designed to help you apply for registration with the professional bodies in accounting and finance. Most Accounting and Finance graduates choose employment that enables further study with a view to gaining a full professional qualification and a career in accounting and/or finance.

You could also use your degree (and the more general business and personal skills you’ll have developed) as a foundation for a career in general management in a wide range of organisations. Many students will go on to study for professional accountancy qualifications offered by bodies such as ICAEW, ACCA, CIMA or CIPFA. Your degree should enable you to gain a number of exemptions from their examination requirements.
