Course content

Accounting and finance are central to managing organisations effectively. This course integrates accounting, leadership and change, and gives you a practical insight into developing the discipline. It also provides you with a firm knowledge of accounting and finance and the adaptability needed in a rapidly changing environment.

This course is distinctive in its focus on using financial skills in organisations rather than on mathematically modelling financial markets and in placing business accounting systems in the national and global business environment.

You develop hard and soft accounting skills as well as the interpersonal skills necessary to work effectively in the challenging business environment. The programme is suitable for fully or part-qualified accountants for whom significant exemptions are available.

Graduates can expect to be employed in areas within industry, accounting practices or the public sector. The programme provides a good stepping stone to training for a career in accountancy or a role in general management, and also provides those seeking positions in the finance industry with both specialist finance knowledge and the necessary level of understanding of accounting.
