Many accountants occupy key managerial positions in business, yet few are qualified managers. This degree was created in response to market demand for graduates with specialist accounting knowledge, competent to manage and to lead. It is anticipated that students will effectively structure part of their degree, incorporating their own work-experience as case studies for relevant assessments. We are proud that our students have been finalists a number of times in the national IBM Business Challenge. Our single honours Accounting and Management course is structured to achieve some exemptions with the professional accounting bodies; the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales (ICAEW) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). Additionally it is accredited by the Association of Project Managers and by the Chartered Management Institute. On successful completion of the relevant modules, you will achieve certification with these organisations, enhancing your employment prospects. On all of our accounting degrees, knowledge, critical analysis and interpersonal skills are developed through lectures, seminars, workshops and a variety of assessment modes. These satisfy academic, professional, and commercial requirements. Guest speakers are regularly invited to address our students, with our ‘Business Futures’ weeks promoting student interaction with businesses including accounting firms, enhancing employability. Our experienced team has created an engaging course which captures the diversity of this topical area, developing an understanding of both the national and the global dimensions of this discipline. Our Business School courses provide a sound and relevant educational foundation for an array of roles in industry, practice, the service sector or self-employment.
