About BSc Accounting and Management

By coordinating teaching across the School of Economics, Finance and Management, rather than at departmental level, we can offer you a genuinely integrated degree in accounting and management, allowing you to study the two disciplines at a level that is both substantial and useful.

The first two years have a largely fixed structure. This ensures that you gain a sound understanding of important concepts in accounting and in management before moving on to specialise in the areas that most interest you.

The final year has no compulsory units. Our final-year accounting-related units include Advanced Management Accounting and Financial Reporting.

Popular management-related units include:

  • Strategic Management
  • Marketing
  • Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability.

You can also study units in economics or law.
