Course summary

Accounting is the language of business. It gives managers, investors and governments the information they need to make financially-sound decisions.

In the increasingly complex modern business environment, there is a high demand for skilled professionals who can work flexibly in teams across business boundaries. You’ll need strategic focus and the ability to influence decision making and apply judgement responsibly.

This course places accounting and finance skills in a broader business context. You’ll gain the technical skills and problem-solving abilities you might expect from an accounting and finance programme but will have also can develop strong communication skills, a broad commercial awareness and a critical approach to business problems. An industry placement lets you put theory into practice and will give you valuable experience working in an accounting or finance role.

Accredited by several professional bodies, this academically challenging and vocationally relevant degree is an ideal steppingstone into careers in accountancy and management.

Assessment

You will be assessed using a mixture of essays, projects and examinations. For some modules you'll produce reports, strategy documents or group presentations. This course puts greater emphasis on examinations in order to comply with the requirements of accreditation by the Institute of Chartered Accountants for England and Wales.
