Discover the power and challenges of accountancy as a tool in society and the financial techniques you’ll need to help society function
As the accounting and financial reporting world becomes more global, this BAcc course prepares students for a career as an international accountant or for a wide variety of other careers in different countries that benefit from a business education. It also develops a critical awareness of the concepts underpinning accounting and finance practices, as well as the role played by accounting and finance in society.
You will learn about the international reporting practices adopted by companies listed on the UK stock exchange as well as quoted companies from further afield.
We encourage you to recognise how financial information makes a contribution to society, and to consider where it might cause or exacerbate societal problems.
We have close links with the accountancy profession, on a local, national and international level and across organisations of all sizes. You’ll benefit from the insights and experiences of accounting and finance practitioners , many of whom are graduates of our degree.
Many students do an internship with an accountancy firm during their holidays, combining their study with work experience. You will be able to interact directly with employers.
This course is partially accredited by ICAS, ACCA, CIMA, AIA and Chartered Accountants Ireland. It also carries part accreditation from ICAEW and CIPFA.
