Course summary

Overview

Our course has been developed for students who have not previously studied Accounting but are interested in a career in accountancy or performance management or who are interested in conducting academic research in accounting and business reporting.

Course details

We aim to provide you with the skills needed to demonstrate to employers that you have the ability to practise the craft of accounting and to gather, analyse, investigate, evaluate and communicate the essential records and numbers that businesses use in decision-making and performance evaluation.

This course will equip you with theoretical and practical learning in accounting, performance reporting, financial management and the management and governance of corporations. Our module on Accounting as a Profession will provide guidance on the practical role of the accountant and on accounting ethics, while our module on Transnational Financial Crime will provide insights into issues of such as the laundering of proceeds of crime and the financing of terrorism. Our module on Corporate Governance will further develop your communication skills in writing and in discussion in a simulated boardroom setting.

You will also complete a research methods module, followed by a dissertation, which will enable you further to develop your skills in analysing qualitative and quantitative information, as well as in the development of research questions and the presentation of the results of academic research.

Careers

On successful completion of this programme you will have the knowledge, understanding and skills to seek postgraduate-level employment in accountancy and to enter professional accountancy training. Alternatively you will be eligible to apply for progression to doctoral-level study in Accounting, Corporate Governance or Financial Management at the University or to seek entry to doctoral-level study at another higher education institution.
