Today’s professionals need an understanding of business and the role of accounting, law, strategy, economics, statistics and finance in professional decision-making. This course will help you to develop that valuable skillset. It provide you with specialised knowledge in the area of accounting, as well as the professional, intellectual and inter-personal skills that employers are looking for.
This course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation attained by fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. It recognises our focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching and student learning.
To add a truly international aspect to your studies, you can also study abroad at one of our partner institutions during the second semester of the second year. Currently we have partners in Australia, Canada and Europe.
All of our accounting and finance courses share the same first year, giving you a comprehensive overview of the sector. If you decide the path you have started isn’t for you, you will be able to transfer to a different specialism at the end of your first year.
A degree in Accounting will prepare you for a variety of roles in organisations of all sizes and from many sectors. You’ll have an excellent grounding in accounting before going on to specialise in your second year, ensuring that you keep your career options open. Some of our alumni go on to work for companies such as Airbus, Arcadia, Barclays Bank Plc, Deloitte, Deutsche Bank, HMRC, IBM, Miscox, Threadneedle Investments and Vodafone.
