Accounting and finance experts are found at the heart of almost all business organisations. This triple accredited course prepares you for a challenging and rewarding career in the financial world. In addition to financial skills, you will learn the key management proficiencies to solve problems, make decisions and manage, lead and grow all types of organisations. Abertay’s BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance with People Management lies within the School of Business, Law and Social Sciences. The degree is professionally accredited by three industry bodies – CIMA, ACCA and AIA. Alongside the skills required for a career in accountancy, taxation, auditing and corporate finance, you will learn the HR skills essential to manage people effectively. Finance and people management complement each other perfectly. An understanding of recruitment, talent management and HR allows you to develop the soft skills crucial to extract the best performance from people and drive organisational performance. The degree has employability at the forefront with options of a work placement, international study and the opportunity to work on live business projects and simulations set by companies such as Sky, Enterprise Rent-a-Car and Children 1st. Previous activities have also included the IBM Universities Business Challenge and Entrepreneurial Brains Made on Campus in association with Germany’s Stuttgart Media University. An Accounting and Finance degree at Abertay is inherently flexible with the ability to tailor what you study to your own interests and career aspirations. The first two years of study cover a common curriculum including the basics of accounting, business management and marketing. As you progress, you can remain on Accounting and Finance, or aside from the People Management subject specialism, choose one in Law or Business Analytics.

Assessment method

Assessment varies substantially across modules. Some modules, particularly where there is professional accreditation, have more traditional assessments such as exams. However, where we can, we like to vary the types of assessment. Therefore students can expect to create presentations, videos, posters, reports, research outputs, practical exercises, strategic papers, design processes or products and so on. As the programme has multiple options, students will be able to experience a wide range of assessments.
