WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS COURSE?
This course will maintain the focus of accounting but will also provide an understanding of the wider context in which accounting operates within the global business world. It will offer a curriculum that is up to date, vocationally relevant, challenging and reflects the complex and challenging nature of the accounting and business environment.
As you progress, you will be given the opportunity to become a more effective and creative problem solver and develop a set of graduate skills which will encourage you to become enterprising and employable.
You will gain expertise in areas including financial accounting, management accounting, entrepreneurial finance, business operations, international business, e-business and leadership.
You will have the opportunity to use software relevant to the modern business environment, equipping you with the skills and experience sought by employers. You will develop scholarly attributes, becoming an independent learner with the ability to critically evaluate data and evidence, draw reasoned conclusions and communicate effectively in a professional manner.
With our practice-based approach to teaching, you will learn from professionally qualified academics with a wealth of industry experience, and research active academics whose research underpins and informs our approach to teaching.
You will be actively supported and encouraged to undertake an additional professional placement year, providing the opportunity to improve your employability skills. Our students have worked for organisations such as IBM, NHS, Worcester Bosch, Airbus and Vodafone.
The international focus of the course is derived through a variety of means including the study of international accounting standards, student body, the teaching team and the use of international teaching materials. Moreover, students can choose to spend a full semester studying their modules overseas at a partner institution.
This course shares a common first year with other accounting courses within the Business School with full transferability between courses at the end of the first year.
Your programme will provide you with an opportunity to apply your developing knowledge and skills in the workplace either by taking a full year’s work placement in the UK or overseas or through engaging in shorter work placements, internships or voluntary work.
