Do you want to develop a career in management from a quantitative perspective? To study a degree that plays to your strengths with numbers, but isn’t its sole focus? This course offers you the chance to gain a solid foundation in accounting, knowledge of management subjects such as human resources or marketing, and workplace experience.
Spending your third year on a paid industrial placement gives you valuable practical experience in business. It also shows how the academic theories you have studied work in the real world.
You start your degree by studying accounting and finance using genuine data from actual companies. You will learn about economic issues such as inflation, demand and cost. We will also focus on how to build your CV to enhance your opportunities after graduation.
All second-year students study auditing, financial accounting, risk, finance, management accounting for business decisions and statistical analysis. Other options include law and subjects from at least two other Management School departments.
You’ll be supported in securing a third-year placement with companies such as Deloitte, Lloyds Bank, PwC and Samsung. Roles on offer range from finance, auditing and accounting to operations, consulting and risk.
Your final year builds on your knowledge with more advanced options in accounting, management and finance. The topics you can select range from taxation to ethical behaviour, share prices to mergers. You can also choose whether to write a dissertation.
Combining management studies with accountancy produces graduates with a broad base of abilities in demand by employers. These include practical skills such as report writing, presentations and IT knowledge. Past graduates have also continued their studies, progressing to a Masters degree.
All our Accounting and Finance degrees prepare you for a wide variety of careers in business, with many of our graduates working with professional firms and financial institutions, as well as large commercial and local government organisations. Roles include trainee accountants, finance managers and banking advisors.
Your degree will also equip you with highly desirable transferable skills which have helped recent graduates find work in the fields of financial customer service, IT support and marketing and communications. Several graduates have also continued their academic studies and embarked on Masters degrees.
