Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
Accounting is the process of taking financial data, analysing it, and presenting it in reports that can be easily interpreted by others. This is crucial for businesses, where managers don’t always have training in finance, but need this information to make informed decisions.
Accounting is for logical thinkers. The course offers an in-depth knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of accounting and finance, as well as an understanding of the business, legal, taxation and IT context of this work.
The degree is structured around three main areas: Accounting, Finance and Buisness. Students may also choose to study a Eurpoean language (French, German or Spanish) for all or part of their course.
Graduates are granted significant exemptions from examinations of professional accountancy bodies.
