Course summary

On this professionally accredited course, you learn how to be a more effective accountant, business consultant or manager by combining accounting knowledge with economic theories. You can also gain accreditations and exemptions from some ACCA, ICAEW and CIMA exams and spend your third year studying abroad. We have exchange partners in the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, the Middle East, Hong Kong and Japan. By understanding key accounting principles, as well as how the economy functions, fluctuates and impacts organisations, you can make better informed recommendations that positively influence business strategy and performance. You acquire knowledge and practical skills by exploring topics such as: financial and management accounting, the preparation of financial statements, costing, budgeting and performance evaluation, micro and macroeconomics and international trade. In your first year, we also introduce you to important aspects of marketing, management and finance. These core areas ensure you gain a fully-rounded business education, providing a solid foundation for your second and final years and future career. In your final year, you have the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice by completing an in-depth, independent research project or dissertation (subject to approval). This will give you the chance to further develop vital employability skills in areas of research, time management and critical thinking. This course combines expertise from two highly ranked departments, Essex Business School (EBS) and the Department of Economics. EBS is a signatory of the UN Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) and champion business ethics and sustainability. We encourage students to make responsible decisions for the good of business and society. Consequently, your course will explore important issues of management accountability and explore political, cultural and social implications of corporate actions.
