Accounting and Management (Including Placement Year)

Course summary

What drives an organisation’s decision making? How can accounting improve business performance? Combine your interests in both accounting and management to gain a unique skills set and career advantage. Accountants and managers must work closely to interpret financial data and influence business performance. By understanding how both commercial functions operate, their priorities and unique vocabulary, you can work more effectively as a team to deliver organisational success. Through BSc Accounting and Management you gain a foundation in financial accounting, management accounting, financial management, management and organisation studies, with an opportunity to develop expertise in a chosen specialism. You’ll gain a broad understanding of accounting and management through studying a range of topics including:

  • accounting and financial reporting
  • prepare financial statements in accordance with UK GAAP
  • quantitative and qualitative management accounting systems
  • auditing
  • management theory and practice
  • organisational behaviour
  • business strategy leadership
  • human resource management
Our accounting and management degree will give you a strong grounding in financial and management accounting, with case studies applying accounting theory to practice. You learn how to manage people and organisations in complex global environments and develop the quantitative skills needed for strategic decision making. In your first year, you are also introduced to topics such as marketing, finance and economics. This ensures you gain a broad knowledge of core business areas and concepts which you can use throughout your degree and future career. As your course develops, you can choose from selected optional modules to tailor the programme to your career aspirations. In your final year, you have the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice by completing an in-depth, independent research project or dissertation. This will give you the chance to further develop vital employability skills in areas of research, time management and critical thinking. BSc Accounting and Management is taught at Essex Business School. We are an internationally diverse school, committed to sustainable and ethical business practices.
