Manchester Metropolitan University designed the (Hons) Accounting and Finance to cover the same content as many of the chartered accountancy exams. That means you’ll be exempt from a lot of professional bodies’ exams. After graduation, you could be well on your way to being a qualified professional in a shorter space of time.

Kick-starting your career

Building your financial knowledge is just part of the picture. You’ll also develop the management skills you need to have a successful career. When you graduate you’ll have a range of transferable skills that employers around the world are looking for.

With its strong and growing economy, Manchester is the perfect place to learn. Our Business School is well-connected with local, national and international companies. The optional placement year, or study abroad year, is an excellent opportunity to add to your CV. In your final year you can choose from specialist modules and tailor your studies to suit your interests.


Accounting and finance offers huge potential for jobs with high pay and a high profile. Leading employers including KPMG, Deloitte, EY and Experian have hired our graduates.

You may prefer to set up your own accountancy business. Or you could find a job away from the finance sector. Organisations in every industry need people with strong management skills and a good head for figures.

Your skills will serve you well whatever path you choose. UK accountancy qualifications are recognised around the world. That means there are opportunities to travel or even live and work abroad.
