Accountants play a crucial role in business, public sector and not for profit organisations. Their ability to measure financial information and make projections affects economic and organisational decision-making at all levels.Financial accountants report on the performance of an organisation, and management accountants provide financial information to help with planning and strategy.Accountancy is the fastest growing area of business activity. Equally the world of finance is a crucial aspect of contemporary business. This programme therefore offers a thorough understanding of both these disciplines.
