Full-time undergraduate (3 years, 4 years with placement) January start only available for the 3-year course (without placement). Studying in Chelmsford in our Centre of Excellence in Accounting and Finance, you'll be part of the Lord Ashcroft International Business School, well-recognised by employers and professional bodies as a centre for innovative business education and training.
You could go on to become a practising accountant, or opt for a wide range of careers in industry, business and the public sector. You may find yourself working in a global corporation, a small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) or even for yourself – it’s not unusual for company CEOs to come from an accounting or finance background. Our graduates have moved directly into careers with prestigious Big Four auditors, such as Deloitte, and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC). Alternatively you may decide to continue your education on a postgraduate course, such as our MSc Accounting and MSc Finance. We work closely with professional bodies such as ACCA, Chartered Institute of Management Accounting (CIMA), Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) Institute and Chartered Institute of Bankers (CIB). This means that everything you learn will be highly relevant in today's commercial arena. On graduation, you’ll be able to apply for exemptions from these professional bodies. Through our Business School Intern programme, around 35 students each year get a business mentor, work experience, exclusive training and development, and a reference from our Dean.
