Course summary

On this professionally accredited course, you learn how economic theories and concepts can be applied to accounting practices to improve business performance. You acquire knowledge and practical skills in financial and management accounting and gain an understanding of how economic principles can drive changes in accounting. Completion of our course provides you with accreditations and exemptions from The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). This means that you are able to gain a professional qualification by taking fewer exams when you graduate, giving your career a head start. You study topics including: the preparation of financial statements, costing, budgeting and performance evaluation, financial and management accounting theory, micro and macroeconomics and international trade. Your first year also introduces you to marketing, management and finance to provide you with a fully-rounded business education. This course combines expertise from Essex Business School (EBS) and the Department of Economics. EBS is an internationally diverse place to study, committed to responsible business practice, so your course will explore the importance of accountability. The Department of Economics is top five in the UK for research, with over 90% of research rated “world-leading” or “internationally excellent” (REF 2014). You are taught by a highly qualified, enthusiastic team of academics and practitioners, who ensure you learn about the issues facing today’s accountants and economists. You’ll often see our academics, such as Professor of Accounting Prem Sikka, talking to the media about contemporary business issues. Our economics researchers are at the forefront of their field and have even received MBEs. Many provide consultancy services to businesses in London and other major financial centres.
