Course summary

**Description**The BA Accounting and Management is designed to give you a strong foundation in accounting and finance while also offering you the opportunity to develop particular expertise in management. General areas of study may include accounting information, the legal, regulatory and social context within which accounting operates. Management specific topics may include entrepreneurship, marketing principles, and managing in a global environment. What’s more, if you choose the relevant modules, you may be exempt from some of the ACA, ACCA and CIMA examinations once you’ve completed your degree. Just another small step that’ll help make your way up the career ladder a little easier. **Flexibility – it may be possible to change your degree path to either Accounting and Finance or Finance (if you have a Tier 4 visa will will need to check this in advance with the Tier 4 regulations which are in place at the time).** **Year 1**In the first year you will study six compulsory modules which are:Introduction to Financial Accounting, Introduction to Management Accounting, Business Environment and Functions, Foundations of Finance, Introduction to Economics, Quantitative Methods.**Year 2**The second year consists of four compulsory modules:Auditing and Assurance, Corporate Finance, Corporate Financial Reporting, Management Accounting. Plus two optional modules selected from a range which have previously included:Managing in a Global Environment, Principles of Business Law, Introduction to Taxation, Entrepreneurship, A foreign language.**Year 3***All of our degrees offer you the option of spending your third year gaining practical experience on a placement. Placement years are a great way to develop your employment marketability and to engage with employers early in their recruitment pipeline. A placement requires a minimum of 40 weeks of work experience and the placement begins in the summer following completion of the second year, and this then becomes the third year of a four-year degree programme. This allows you to really explore and understand your job and to find out if the career or company is for you.*The offer of a place on a ‘with Placement Year’ degree does not imply that Durham University Business School guarantees to find the student a placement. The Business School, in association with the University, will assist students in finding and applying for placements, but it is the responsibility of the student to apply for and to obtain a placement (which is subject to approval by the Business School). In the event that a student is unable to obtain a placement, transfer to the equivalent ‘non-placement’ programme is guaranteed provided the student is eligible to transfer on academic grounds. Due to visa requirements, we recommend that international students interested in the Placement Year as part of their degree apply for this programme when making their application to us via UCAS. This will prevent students having to change their visa in situ at University, and avoid the fee of a new visa.**Year 4**Moving to a more research-led teaching orientation in the fourth year, you are required to produce a double module Dissertation in an area of accounting and management. Additionally, you will study three compulsory modules exploring: Contemporary Issues in Accounting, Contemporary Issues in Management Research, Financial Planning and Control.And choose one module from a selection which in previous years have included, for example: Corporate Governance, Strategic Management, Corporate Responsibility, Islamic Economics and Finance, A foreign language.**We review course structures and core content (in light of e.g. external and student feedback) every year, and will publish finalised core requirements for 2021 entry from September 20
