We encourage you to pursue your interests, develop your strengths, and move towards your ideal career. 

In your first year, you’ll study accounting and finance using real-world data from actual companies. You will also discover more about economic issues such as inflation, costs and pricing. You will also get advice on how to build your CV.

Second year core subjects include auditing, financial accounting, risk, corporate finance and management accounting for business decisions. You can also select from courses such as law, management decision making and advanced finance topics like hedging. Your third year builds on this knowledge while offering specialist options such as ethics, investments and taxation.

Whether it’s a tech start-up or a multinational industrialist, every company needs an accountant. Your studies can also be a route into corporate finance and business. Many Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) began their careers as accountants.
