Many Accountants occupy key managerial positions in business, yet few are qualified managers. This new degree was created in response to market demand for graduates with specialist Accounting knowledge, competent to manage and to lead. It is anticipated that students will effectively structure part of their degree, incorporating their own work-experience as case-studies for relevant assessments.
This single honours Accounting and Management programme is structured to achieve some exemptions with the professional accounting bodies; the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales (ICAEW) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).
Additionally it is accredited by the Association of Project Managers and by the Chartered Management Institute. On successful completion of the relevant modules, students will achieve certification with these organisations, enhancing employment prospects.
On all of our Accounting degree programmes, knowledge, critical analysis and interpersonal skills are developed through lectures, seminars, workshops and a variety of assessment modes. These satisfy academic, professional, and commercial requirements. Guest speakers are regularly invited to address our students, with our annual ‘Accounting Futures’ event promoting student interaction with businesses and with accounting firms.
