Overview

Do you want to branch out into the world of accounting and financial management?

Accounting disclosures and financial reports are vital to business analysis and decision-making. They equip managers, owners and investors with highly valuable information to use in monitoring the effectiveness of a firm or organisation.

This joint degree programme will enable you to develop a broad understanding of the theory and practice of both disciplines. The core accounting modules will give you a sound understanding of accounting methods and financial management techniques designed to assess and improve company-level financial performance.

Core modules examine the role of financial markets and institutions, company valuation, and corporate governance and accountability.

This degree will challenge and inspire you, and provide you with an essential foundation for a future career in accounting, finance, banking or general management.

Testimonial

I have a strong interest in accounting and how money is managed, and prefer the maths side to business…the School of Business and Management has a range of interesting modules that enable you to think creatively, such as marketing, or more mathematical modules, such as accounting. I believe that it therefore provides a good pathway for future prospects.

Teaching

Teaching and learning

Teaching and research are based on three pillars: governance; social justice and sustainability; and the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).

You'll receive approximately two hours of weekly contact time per module, comprising lectures led by academic staff and smaller seminar groups.

For every hour spent in class, you’ll complete a further two to three hours of independent study. You'll have access to well-designed resources for this self-directed study, and we will pair you with an academic adviser to support your progress at all stages of your degree.

Assessment

Assessment typically includes a combination of coursework (presentations, assignments, essay report writing, in-class tests, research and project work) and/or examinations in May or June. 

Resources and facilities

The School offers excellent on-campus resources to aid your studies, including:

  • a purpose-built media suite designed to support student entrepreneurship
