Accounting and finance are at the heart of all business operations. From micro businesses and ‘start ups’ to multinational service and supply companies, the ability to manage, plan and account for money is the key driver of growth and profit, the ultimate measures of business success. A degree in Accounting and Business will enable you to develop the skills necessary to influence and inform business operations and strategy. Enabling you to drive policy and deliver jobs, prosperity and wealth, this degree programme will open the door to a wide range of challenging and rewarding career opportunities in the UK and abroad. We'll give you a grounding in the two key branches of accounting – management and financial accounting – teaching you how to prepare and analyse business accounts and critically interpret and inform financial decision making. We'll show you how businesses design and control their operations, exploring how economic factors affect business decisions. In addition to finance and accounting, you'll study models for management and leadership, and gain an understanding of how corporate governance works. You'll also explore the legal context for accounting and business, looking at the areas of UK and EU law that directly affect the legal structure and operations of businesses. Your lecturers will use their industry experience to relate accounting and business theories to working practice. This programme makes extensive use of real-life case studies, for example, to bring current issues with audit quality and misreporting scandals to life. You will apply what you learn as you study, meaning that on graduation you can be confident in your ability to work and thrive in any business or professional sector.
