Management accounting is a forward-looking practice. On this degree, you will learn how to influence the future of the businesses you’ll work in, potentially changing their direction in both subtle and major ways. In business you need to be able to come up with new ideas and strategies. You also need to be able to cost those ideas and present them in a compelling way. This is the day-to-day business of the management accountant, and you’ll get first hand experience of it on this course.
Accounting and management is a common route to the top of business, with many CEOs of large companies coming from an accountancy and financial director background. So if you have ambitions to go all the way, and if you don’t just love working with numbers but also with people, this degree is ideal.
The Accounting and Management with a Year Abroad from University of East Anglia will prepare you for a successful career as a management accountant or financial director, dealing with issues such as how much products cost, how much new products or services will cost to develop and take to market, and the financial implications of opening new divisions or closing old ones. On this degree you’ll learn the financial accounting skills needed to ask the right questions and collect and interpret the relevant information. You’ll also learn how to effectively present this information to decision-makers, and how to make recommendations and decisions of your own. This includes learning how to present specialist financial and accounting information to non-experts in a way they can understand.
You will take a core of accountancy and management modules, where you’ll learn important accountancy skills and discover different management theories. You’ll also have a lot of freedom to design your own course, choosing from a wealth of optional modules. This means you’ll be able to focus on the areas of management and accountancy that interest you most. For example, you could focus on strategic management, resource management, HR management and more. Or you could choose to concentrate on more traditional financial accounting, audit, or tax modules.
As a management accountant you need to be able to communicate your findings and ideas, including to non-experts and people who aren’t from an accounting background. On this course you will develop your written and presentation skills, becoming a confident, passionate and persuasive communicator. You’ll learn to take complex accounting and financial information and present it in a way that’s simple, engaging and clear.
