This course is designed to prepare you for careers in diverse areas of accounting, finance and management and to equip you to deal with the challenges of an ever-changing business world. One of our key goals is to place accounting and financial management firmly in its business context and we offer the opportunity to study a much wider range of subjects than those included in the professional syllabuses. This course is approved by major professional accounting bodies in the UK (ICAEW, CIMA, ACCA and AIA) and graduates can gain exemptions from a number of their examinations or credits for prior learning. In the first two years you will cover the core areas of accounting and financial management, as well as the legal, economic and organisational contexts in which accountants and financial managers operate. In the final year you build on this and your placement experience and have the opportunity to specialise by choosing more advanced optional modules that suit your career ambitions.
