In addition to financial skills, you will learn the key management proficiencies to solve problems, make decisions and manage, lead and grow all types of organisations. Abertay’s BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance with Law lies within the School of Business, Law and Social Sciences.

Previous activities have also included the IBM Universities Business Challenge and Entrepreneurial Brains Made on Campus in association with Germany’s Stuttgart Media University. An Accounting and Finance degree at Abertay is inherently flexible with the ability to tailor what you study to your own interests and career aspirations. The first two years of study cover a common curriculum including the basics of accounting, business management and marketing.

Assessment method

Assessment varies substantially across modules. Some modules, particularly where there is professional accreditation, have more traditional assessments such as exams. However, where we can, we like to vary the types of assessment. Therefore students can expect to create presentations, videos, posters, reports, research outputs, practical exercises, strategic papers, design processes or products and so on. As the programme has multiple options, students will be able to experience a wide range of assessments.
