Accounting and Finance

This programme is designed to develop an understanding of accounting and finance in global organisations. A distinctive feature of the programme is that it is designed for graduates from any discipline with a strong interest in the foundations of accounting and finance who wish to acquire analytical skills, both numerical and discursive, to pursue a career in the financial sector. You do not need to have studied in this discipline, but we recommend that students have a basic knowledge and understanding of accounting and/or business studies to make the most of this programme. The programme also caters for those who seek a general career in business or public service but who want to know more about how the accounting and finance sector operates and how it influences stakeholders, including managers, providers of finance and government.
