Course summary

The Financial Management and Accounting with Foundation Year BA (Hons) course aims to provide you with a solid grounding for building a career in accounting and finance. The strength of the course lies in preparing students, who are unable to follow the more traditional route onto a degree course in Financial Management and Accounting. The foundation - year one aims to provide the fundamental knowledge and skill set in a range of mathematical and business principles, as well as the theories and concept involved in investment risk and professional ethics. Students who successfully complete their foundation year will then progress onto the Financial Management and Accounting with BA (Hons). The Financial Management and Accounting BA (Hons) degree part of the course aims to enable students to make a valid contribution to managerial and accounting functions of any organisation such as sole traders, firms of partnerships, private and public companies and charitable organisations. Students who go on to graduate could benefit in the workplace by acquiring the skills and knowledge required to enable them to climb the ladder of opportunity for promotion to senior positions in an organisation, for example becoming an Assistant Management Accountant supporting a Financial Accountant in the preparation of budgets and financial statements. This degree also seeks to develop and embed students with a commercial awareness, a key to success in the finance and accountancy sectors, enabling graduates to show that they can understand the work of a finance organisation as well as that of the companies for which the organisation works.
