The BSc Accounting and Finance programme is primarily designed for students who are interested in following a career in accountancy or in obtaining professional accounting qualifications at the start of their business career. Students will gain advanced theoretical and practical knowledge of accounting and finance and learn to understand management concepts within an international business context.
This programme goes beyond the theoretical and quantitative techniques fundamental to accounting and finance. It draws from various disciplines, such as statistics, economics, law and information technology in order to gain a truly solid understanding of the field. With a generalist business and management core, this degree will not just allow you to pursue careers in accounting and finance but in relevant managerial fields as well.
Students will develop a set of transferable skills, such as problem solving and advanced analytical thinking, to support them in their professional journey. Students will learn how to work effectively individually and in teams to become confident communicators both written and verbally in order to ensure they can communicate and liaise effectively in a business environment.
