We encourage you to pursue your interests, develop your strengths, and move towards your ideal career. Accredited by British accountancy bodies, this degree provides graduates with exemptions from many core professional examinations. The ‘Professional Pathway’ within this degree even includes Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) exams. This means, on graduation you’ll be further along the Chartered Accountants route than many of your contemporaries.
In your first year, you’ll study accounting and finance using real-world data from actual companies. You will also discover more about economic issues such as inflation, costs and pricing. You will also get advice on how to build your CV.
Second year core subjects include auditing, financial accounting, risk, corporate finance and management accounting for business decisions. You can also select from courses such as law, management decision making and advanced finance topics like hedging. Your third year builds on this knowledge while offering specialist options such as ethics, investments and taxation.
Whether it’s a tech start-up or a multinational industrialist, every company needs an accountant. Your studies can also be a route into corporate finance and business. Many Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) began their careers as accountants.
