This award equips you with the relevant skills and knowledge to pursue a career in accountancy, finance, banking and a wide range of management roles. The programme has been designed specifically to provide you with maximum exemptions from internationally recognised accounting professional body examinations, giving you a head start when it comes to qualifying as an accountant. In addition to your academic studies, you will also be trained in the use of accounting software, analytical skills, report writing, and further employability skills which will enable you to better adapt to the rapidly changing environment of work.
All students have the opportunity to take an optional placement year providing valuable workplace experience and significantly improving your employability on graduation. In addition, during your studies you will have the opportunity to meet with accounting and business practitioners through guest lectures and other special events.
