Course summary

The undergraduate BSc Accounting & Finance programme is topically focused on accounting and finance but is fundamentally grounded in other core social science disciplines as well as practically connected to the social sciences through optional courses and LSE100.

Specifically, in addition to developing core knowledge and skills in accounting and finance, you will learn to analyse how accounting and finance is concerned with a range of institutional and organisational processes of calculation, reporting, and evaluation. You will also learn to appreciate the interdependencies between accounting and accountability, financial management and risk, performance management and sustainability, governance and regulation, policy making and change, among other key fundamental concepts related to, implicated in, or affected by accounting and finance. You will learn to critically evaluate the use and suitability of accounting and finance techniques in different contexts. You will gain a deep understanding of the nature of organisations in the economy and society, and the crucial role that accounting and finance play in societies, economies, institutions, markets, organisations, and even individual behaviours.

This diverse social science approach to accounting and finance makes our graduating students highly sought after by a wide range of organisations globally in any area related to accounting or finance, and even beyond into other areas. Recent graduates of this programme have gone on to work in the areas of professional accountancy, investment banking, investment analysis, management consultancy and financial management, but also in the public sector as well as into further academic study. If you successfully complete the degree, then depending on the optional courses you have taken, you may be eligible for exemptions for some examinations of the professional accountancy bodies.
