A good understanding of accounting, finance and the environments in which they operate is essential for anyone working in, or wanting to enter, the accounting profession. Our BSc Accounting with Finance will help you develop both the quantitative and analytical skills required for a career in accountancy and a range of transferable skills, including decision-making, management and perceptive abilities. You will:
