Looking to develop a career in accounting or working closely with the accounting profession? Want to find out how accounting can improve managerial decision-making? This joint degree provides high-level training and knowledge in accounting and its role in management in both the public and private sectors. It attracts a wide range of people, including administrators, clerical workers and managers, and self-employed people.

You will develop a broad understanding of accounting and management, gaining detailed knowledge of accounting practices, finance, strategic management, marketing, managerial economics and quantitative techniques. Exemptions from accountancy bodies' professional examinations are possible.

This programme attracts students from both the public and private sectors, including administrators, clerical workers and managers, as well as the self-employed. Because it is taught entirely by evening study, you are able to combine your academic studies with daytime commitments.

The majority of our students work or care for a family, so you will be learning with people from a wide range of backgrounds and with a wide range of experiences. This creates a stimulating and supportive learning environment. Our tutorial/seminar sessions give you a chance to interact with your peers and develop insights into analysing and interpreting a wide and varied subject matter.
