Overview

Overview

Modern accountancy isn't all about number crunching and spreadsheets. As an accountant you need to be able to understand, visualise and present financial data to ensure businesses make the right decisions. You'll be at the heart of the business, analysing performance and informing strategy.

This degree focuses on modern accountancy skills. You'll learn to inform and persuade using numbers. You'll work in small groups that replicate the workplace, with a focus on teamwork, real world case studies and developing strategy from financial data.

From your second year you'll be able to tailor your learning to your area of specialist interest, choosing your modules to focus on:

  • professional modules: take the fastest route to becoming an ACCA chartered accountant

  • analytics modules: combine accounting with data analysis, including data cleaning, visualisation and modelling
