Course Summary

The BSc in Accounting and Finance will provide you with a solid foundation and technical skills in accounting and finance. We will help you to develop quantitative, communications and information technology skills and the ability to apply these skills in an accounting and finance context. You will learn how managers, shareholders and other stakeholders make decisions in organisations. The course will prepare you for a career or further training opportunities in the accounting and finance professions - in the public and private sectors or in voluntary organisations. If you are interested in postgraduate study this course will prepare you for the increasingly independent aspects of further study and research.

Accounting and finance go together like money and banks. And studying them side-by-side will give you the skills and experience to work in areas such as professional accountancy, investment banking and financial management. Alongside your academic work we recognise that it is also important that you gain experience and develop your skills. The School’s dedicated in-house Career Development Manager works closely with the University’s Career Development Service to make sure you get support to achieve your aspirations. Whether you want to make a difference in the voluntary sector, start your own business or reach the top in an organisation, there are specially designed programmes and activities here at Leicester that can support you in the getting the right skills, experiences and exposure you need.
