Course Introduction

This accounting and finance degree is your first step into the vast industry.

Accountants and finance specialists have a central role in all types of organisations; public and private sector, within industry and commerce. The accountant has become a key player in the provision of management information to enable successful decision making, planning and control. Accounting is more than just a computational skill and the programme will develop your ability to analyse and to evaluate real life situations and effectively communicate your views and opinions. You will consider practical techniques involved in accounting and finance, and develop skills to critically analyse the theory behind these techniques.
