Course summary

Course Summary

This course will develop your understanding of key concepts, enhance your technical abilities and help you appreciate the crucial role accounting and finance plays in organisations, by determining strategy and impacting decision making.

Several modules on this course are accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).

The course concludes with a Business Project; a substantial piece of work designed to provide you with an opportunity to analyse a business problem and practically apply the knowledge and skills developed during the course.

Professional accreditations and exemptions

This course is also a fantastic stepping stone towards becoming a qualified accountant. Several modules are accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). This means you will benefit from exemptions, which reduces the amount of ACCA or CIMA professional training and exams you’ll need to take to become a fully qualified accountant once in employment.

This course will be delivered using a wide range of teaching methods and techniques. We use a combination of lectures, tutorials, business simulations, group work and case studies to enhance your learning experience. For example, the international taxation and accounting module looks at a range of organisations and examines their tax affairs in detail, whilst The Aston Global Advantage module gives you the opportunity to participate in a bespoke accounting business simulation. These applied learning techniques allow you to test your knowledge in key areas, helping you to gain a deeper understanding of international accounting and finance in practice.

Overseas opportunities

We benefit from an extensive network of partner institutions, including some of the highest ranked business schools in Europe, such as Kedge Business School in France. We also have partnerships with univesities worldwide, from Australia, to China, and USA to Singapore.
