The BSc Accounting and Finance programme provides essential grounding in accounting, finance and related areas including statistics, law and management. The programme delivers a combination of modules on general and applied accounting, management, organisational theory, financial management and strategy with specialist regional financial modules in the final year. It is aimed at students wanting to pursue a rigorous scientific based mode of study in the theories underpinning how organisations function; how they deal with uncertainty; how they grow and expand; and how they make decisions and strategy.
Students take 120 credits each year.
The programme has been designed so that second and third year modules build on modules taken in first year.

A Student's Perspective
Part of the reason I chose SOAS over others is because it offered the Islamic Banking and Finance elective module. This is a one-of-a-kind class and an interesting subject that only SOAS offers. My hope is that the knowledge attained in this class will make me more suited for international corporate jobs that deal with the states that are a part of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
