The finance and accounting degree is specifically designed for those students who wish to go on, after graduation, to become a qualified accountant in order to pursue a career, either in professional practice, or in corporate finance.
For this reason, the course has been structured to provide the maximum possible number of exemptions – 9 papers in total – from the professional examinations of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, the global body for professional accountants.
The degree syllabus has been carefully designed to combine the intellectual and practical aspects of finance and accountancy and so provide students with the required academic rigor, tempered with professional realism.
In addition, the degree explores the concepts of business culture and business ethics: and introduces the key management functions across the whole spectrum of business activity. The result is that graduates are equipped with an array of transferable business skills, as well as technical knowledge of finance and accountancy practice.
