Course Details

Accounting and Business BA (Hons)

Course Description

Duration: 3 years, or 4 years with a 40-week placement. The fields of accounting, finance, and economics have developed considerably in recent years and today’s graduates are expected to have a range of skills that transfer into a business environment. As such our degrees have been designed to equip you with the knowledge you’ll need in any organisation, large or small. On the Accounting & Business degree you'll discover that there is considerable crossover between accounting and business management, and as such gaining an understanding of both fields will serve you well. From an accounting point of view, it’s important to have a good understanding of various aspects of a business, while business managers can benefit from a background in accounting to ensure their decisions are financially viable. As well as having industry accreditations and exemptions for accountancy qualifications, which means you may not have to take all the exams required to become a Chartered Accountant, this course also covers communication and IT skills, which are vital in the modern business world. What's more if you opt to include the 40-week placement as part of your course, you’ll gain invaluable workplace experience and can see how what you’ve learned translates into the real world.
