Financial analysis and general business awareness are at the heart of this joint degree course. The course is designed to allow students to develop an awareness of modern business practice through practical activities which aim to equip students with a holistic understanding of how an organisation functions, with specific emphasis on accounting and financial record keeping.
A practical and practice-based programme, this course will equip students with the agile, reflexive and critical thinking skills which are vital for success in modern organisations. Emphasis will be given to the rapidly evolving financial landscape post-pandemic through both teaching material and real-world examples.
Through the use of a wide range of concepts, approaches, critical reflection and e-learning forums the course is designed to equip students with a range of personal and intellectual skills in preparation for a career in accounting and general management fields.
You will acquire core financial skills through case studies, online activities and live projects, through interactions with guest speakers from the financial and business world and through reflecting on your own practice.
Specifically, the course will create business managers who have an in-depth knowledge of accounting techniques which should be valuable both in general management and within the financial and accountancy services sector.
The degree can also be used as the basis for postgraduate study in the area of finance and general business management for example the Business School has an MSc Finance & Accounting which dovetails in with the knowledge and skills obtained on this programme.
