To master the language of accounting and finance is to master the language of business. That means that whatever aspect of business you go on to, the accounting and finance expertise gained on this degree will put you at a great advantage.
This degree isn’t just for aspiring accountants though. Making profit is key to any business. Understanding accounting will give you an advantage whatever sector or role you work in. So the course is also an excellent choice if you want to work in commerce, industry, financial services such as banking, investment banking, fund management or insurance, as a tax advisor, or if you want to start your own business.
After gaining a grounding in core business disciplines you will learn the theory and practice of financial accounting and reporting. You will then develop your understanding of business finance and accountancy, as well as contract and company law. You’ll learn how to understand, interpret and act on the financial accounts of any business. You’ll learn how to put an argument across in a way that’s relevant to the main financial drivers in that business. You’ll also learn how to use your professional judgment to understand and influence business decisions. And you’ll even have the chance to explore how accounting influences wealth distribution in society, and how politics can influence accounting.
