Accounting and Management at Lancaster University - UCAS

Course summary

BSc Accounting and Management teaches the hard skills of accounting and places those alongside competencies in Management. To see how well Management and Accounting work together, look at the backgrounds of the CEOs of the FTSE100 index of firms: fully 1/3rd are certified chartered accountants. This programme allows you to choose Management-related modules from across the Management School and wider University giving you a final degree that you build around your interests and strengths. Programme overview You will learn from leading academic researchers and expert practitioners in accounting, management and associated fields of human resource management and marketing. In your first year, you study accounting and finance using real-world data from actual companies. You will learn about economic issues such as inflation, supply and demand, cost and pricing. All second-year students study auditing, financial accounting, finance, management accounting and statistical analysis. Other options include law and subjects from at least two other Management School departments, for example, Management Science, Marketing, or Economics. Your third year builds on your knowledge with more advanced options in accountancy, management and finance. Select from topics ranging from taxation to ethics, share prices to mergers. Throughout, you learn from academics whose global perspectives inform government and regulators, and from practitioners with experience of running businesses and working in accounting and management. Key facts The degree is accredited by globally-recognised accountancy bodies:

  • Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)
  • Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW)
  • Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS)
  • Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).
These accreditations provide graduates with exemptions from many core professional examinations, depending on your module choices, and means, on graduation, you will be further along the route to qualifying as an accountant than many of your contemporaries. Accounting and Management is also available as a four-year programme with a year in industry. It is possible to switch to that programme soon after starting your degree, subject to availability. You can choose to spend one term in your third year studying abroad, learning selected modules in a new environment, subject to availability. Students have previously studied in the USA and Australia, among other countries. Programme outcomes Specialist careers events put you in contact with potential employers, and our expert careers team help you develop practical skills and assets highly valued in the world of work. Modules prepare you for interviews and assessment centres, build your CV and make you attractive to potential employees, placing you in a strong position to start your future career.
