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
- Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability.
You can also study units in economics or law.

In your second year, you will study Financial Accounting, Management Accounting, Corporate Finance and Management in more depth. We will teach you techniques of both quantitative and qualitative analysis, and you will also choose an optional unit, for example Taxation.
In your final year you will study core units in Financial Reporting and Advanced Management Accounting. You will also choose from a wide range of options, which we vary from time to time according to current developments in accounting, finance and management issues. For example, in the 2015/16 academic year our units included:
- Advanced Corporate Finance
- Corporate Communication
- Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability
- Financial Crises
- Financial Markets
- Financial Statements Analysis
