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 per year. The programme has been designed so that second and third year modules build on modules taken in year one. In their final year students undertake an independent study project.
