Course summary

This course offers a fully integrated degree combining economics and accounting subjects. The course is designed for students who seek to broaden their knowledge of the economy and understand the linkage with accounting. The economics units provide you with insight into economic institutions (for example, banks), actors and policies that underpin and influence the financial market. You will be prepared for a career as an economist, studying in a School of Economics run by world-leading experts. The accounting units explore accounting institutions (for example, audit firms), accounting regulations and accounting techniques that are used by and support organisations both in and outside the market. Our course prepares you for a career in the accountancy profession or financial markets. The course provides you with access to subjects accredited by several professional accountancy bodies, including the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). This course is unique as it offers you an interdisciplinary perspective. You will learn from academic experts who work with businesses in the financial industry. The knowledge acquired from the field is used to design and shape the curriculum, enabling you to keep on top of commercial and contemporary issues. This course provides you with rewarding opportunities to participate in a summer internship and the Bristol PLUS Award. You'll also benefit from the Professional Liaison Network within the faculty, which runs a professional mentoring scheme with alumni, insight talks and internships. Previously, graduates have gone on to work for the Bank of England, JP Morgan, UBS, PwC, KPMG, EY, Microsoft, IBM and many other blue-chip organisations.
