Overview

Although an HND or foundation degree are excellent qualifications to have, you might decide that adding a financial aspect to the qualification is worth another year of study. If you have an HND or foundation degree (or equivalent) in an accounting or finance-related subject, or if you wish to enhance the financial aspects you have covered in a business foundation degree or HND, this course will allow you to convert your qualification into a finance and accounting-related honours degree. 

The Business Finance and Accounting (Hons) (Top-up) degree, offered by Teesside University is aimed specifically at developing financial management skills within a wider business context. Having an excellent understanding of both finance and accounting will give you an advantage in any profession today but particularly in the growing financial services sector.

Career opportunities

Graduates from this programme are better placed to find employment in a wider range of business, management, financial and administrative jobs, both in the UK and overseas, than those with a purely business-related degree.

We provide an environment that allows you to build on and further develop the extra practical employability characteristics that make you more attractive to employers in the job market once you graduate.

Our staff utilise their extensive business connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. In addition we offer a series of workshops and events that ensure all students are equipped with both degree level subject knowledge PLUS the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits.

Our award winning careers service works with regional and national employers to advertise graduate positions, in addition to providing post-graduation support for all Teesside University alumni.
