Accounting and Finance with a Year Abroad

To master the language of accounting and finance is to master the language of business. That means that whatever aspect of business you go on to, the accounting and finance expertise gained on this degree will put you at a great advantage. This degree isn’t just for aspiring accountants though. Making profit is key to any business. Understanding accounting will give you an advantage whatever sector or role you work in. So the course is also an excellent choice if you want to work in commerce, industry, financial services such as banking, investment banking, fund management or insurance, as a tax advisor, or if you want to start your own business. After gaining a grounding in core business disciplines you will learn the theory and practice of financial accounting and reporting. You will then develop your understanding of business finance and accountancy, as well as contract and company law. You’ll learn how to understand, interpret and act on the financial accounts of any business. You’ll learn how to put an argument across in a way that’s relevant to the main financial drivers in that business. You’ll also learn how to use your professional judgment to understand and influence business decisions. And you’ll even have the chance to explore how accounting influences wealth distribution in society, and how politics can influence accounting. We are ranked 6th for Accounting and Finance in the Guardian league table 2018. We were in the top 5 in the UK for overall satisfaction for Finance, Marketing, Management Studies and Business Studies in the National Student Survey 2017. **Course Structure** **Year 1** Across six fascinating core modules you’ll explore the essentials of modern business. This will give you an excellent grounding in not just financial accounting, business finance, and quantitative methods, but also economics, organisational behaviour, human resources management, marketing, supply chain management, and operations management. By the end of your first year, you won’t just have a firm foundation of your chosen subject, you’ll understand all the key disciplines of business. Throughout your future career you are likely to work closely with these disciplines so this understanding is extremely valuable – the accounting and finance specialists who are most able to communicate with and understand other disciplines are often the ones who go the furthest. Should you discover during your first year that your true passion lies with one of these other subjects, you are welcome to change pathways in order to focus on it – an option roughly 25% of our students take advantage of. **Year 2** After exploring all the essentials of business in your first year, you’ll move on to core modules in financial accounting and business finance in your second year, as well as choosing three optional modules from any of those offered by NBS, including modules focusing on auditing, finance, and management. This means you can start to tailor your expertise to your interests and the goals you have for after graduation. You can also study a language. **Year 3** You’ll spend your third year overseas at one of our partner universities in Europe, Asia, Australia or the US. During your time abroad you’ll gain a new perspective on your studies. You’ll also broaden your horizons, grow your confidence and your contacts, and show international employers that you have what it takes to succeed on a global platform. **Year 4** In your fourth year your studies will become even more advanced as you go beyond learning about accounting and finance theories and start to critically analyse them and come up with your own ideas. Through a mix of compulsory and optional modules you will delve into the most current debates facing the financial world today. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
