A programme which combines the study of business and accounting provides an extremely strong platform to build a career within or outside the commercial world. In business the focus is on studying public, private and not-for-profit organisations, both small and large, their management practices and processes for managing strategy and key resources, including people, and the changing external environment in which they operate. Accountancy is one of the fastest-growing areas of business activity. Financial accountants report on the performance of an organisation while management accountants provide financial information to help with planning and strategy. Studying accounting at the University of Edinburgh offers you a flexible programme of study. You will be able to combine your study of accounting with business, finance, economics or law and take a wide range of courses. This offers you a broad-based programme with the flexibility to change direction and specialise through your option course choices. Our staff have a world-leading reputation as prominent researchers in the accounting discipline. Our teaching is therefore based on the most recent research findings and literature. This helps ensure that our graduates are attractive to prospective employers. Our programmes provide an excellent foundation for those hoping to gain a professional accountancy qualification and can also prepare students for careers in finance and other sectors."
