Accountants and finance specialists play a central role in all types of organisations, ranging from the public to the private sector, within industry and commerce, at a global level. The accountant is not only concerned with providing financial information, but is also a key player in the provision of management information to enable successful decision-making, planning and control. Accounting is more than just a computational skill and we intend to develop your ability to analyse and to evaluate real life situations and effectively communicate your views and opinions. The programme aims to provide a high quality education within a friendly and supportive environment, relevant to the needs of the accounting and finance profession, the financial services industry and business in general, within an international context. You will consider the practical techniques involved in accounting and finance, and then continue to develop skills to critically analyse the theory behind these techniques. You will also look at the interdisciplinary nature of business and integrate accounting with broader subject areas such as economics, law and management. In order to apply your learning to real life situations, and plan for your future career there is an option to complete a year's work placement.
