Our BSc Accounting and Finance degree is designed to prepare you for a career in accountancy firms, financial institutions or large multinational enterprises. Henley Business School is ranked 16th in the UK for Accounting and Finance (The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide, 2019). On this degree you will obtain a critical grasp of core accounting and finance theory as well as sound technical knowledge. You will also gain a thorough understanding of the role of accounting and finance in business and society. A range of core modules will develop your understanding of the operation of the financial system and capital markets, and you will have the opportunity to apply the theory learned in a state-of-art dealing room, using computer trading simulations and spreadsheet modelling. Having acquired a sound understanding of core financial, accounting and business concepts in your first year, you can go on to take more advanced modules specialising in your key areas of interest in your second and final years. The final year of the programme enables you to choose optional modules, tailoring your degree towards your own interests and aims. You will graduate with professional and technical skills that will be immediately transferable to the business environment. This degree also offers you the opportunity to transfer to our campus in Malaysia for one year, while still completing the programme in a total of three years. This offers you a fascinating cultural experience, international perspective and the added bonus of reduced fees for that year. This course offers the opportunity to apply for credit for prior learning from three major accounting bodies: ICAEW, ACCA and CIMA. Careers A degree from Henley Business School is respected internationally and can provide a route into many areas, including accounting and professional services, banking, consultancy, finance, human resources, IT, investment banking, marketing, operations and, of course, general management.
