Where better to study international finance and accounting than in the Square Mile, the heart of the world's leading financial centre?

The world will always need people who manage, record, interpret and communicate the way money moves through the hands of individuals, businesses and governments. Successful practitioners are detail-oriented, responsible and discreet, and may be relied upon for advice by anyone from families to chief executives and governments.

Studying finance and accounting doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll go into accountancy: it’s also excellent preparation for any professional or leadership role, in any industry. People with these skills will always be in demand, and can benefit from stable, highly paid jobs with excellent career progression. Graduates from this course have a very strong chance of getting onto a programme with a top employer. 

Key Modules

When you graduate, you’ll be ready to take the first steps into a high-flying business career in the private or public sectors anywhere in the world.

This course is accredited by leading accountancy bodies including ACCA and CIMA, which means you should be well-prepared to sit exams to qualify as an accountant, and you may be exempt from some exams with ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW and CISI. You should also be equipped for a career beyond accounting, because the financial acumen, business skills and global outlook you’ll have begun to develop will be superb preparation for a career anywhere, in any professional or management role.

You’ll be adept at problem-solving and decision-making, and should have an understanding of how to balance risk and investment. You’ll also have had the opportunity to gain a wide range of softer skills, such as teamwork and communication, which will be highly transferable across all industries and employers. 

 

Module & Subject

Year1

Your first year will be an introduction to the way business works and how money and value form part of that process. You’ll explore how business fits into wider society, looking at economics and legal and regulatory frameworks. In your first accountancy modules, you’ll also take your first steps in learning how to ‘account’ for money. From as early as Year One, you’ll begin developing your professional and managerial skills.

Year2

Plunge deeper into detail, learning to analyse, critically evaluate and present key information. Explore how accounting informs, supports and measures business strategy, including balancing investment with risk. Examine the ethical and regulatory frameworks governing finance, including taxation, and discover hands-on how money is moved and traded around the world.

Year3

You’ll go into Year Three either straight after Year Two or after your year in industry/ studying abroad. In your final year, you’ll take a more high-level approach to finance. You’ll also strengthen your research skills as you prepare for your final major project, which will be your choice from a range of options. You’ll also spend time exploring how you can use your degree once you graduate.
