Program Description

BA (Hons) International Finance and Accounting is a research led course, designed to embed employability skills into modules. The course is accredited by ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW, and provides broad opportunities to enhance digital skills in softwares such as Sage, Bloomberg, and S&P Capital IQ. You will build an understanding of the international finance sector and knowledge through specialist modules such as financial reporting, auditing, tax, financial management, international finance, business law and financial investment and risk.

You'll get the chance to examine real business issues by having guest speakers from the finance and accounting industry. We also have field trips to business houses such as Bloomberg, S&P, Lloyds of London, Bank of England to expose our students to the industry by observing the industry, real working environment, and external partners. We also use international case studies and placement opportunities which all give you access to industry and real working environment to ensure you graduate ready for work.

Our graduates are accountants, auditors, securities analysts, investment consultants and tax assistants. Recent graduates secured roles with Ernst and Young, KPMG, NHS, China Construction Bank, China Great Wall Securities Co., Ltd., Shanghai Pharmaceuticals Holdings. Many are employed in successful accounting firms and financial institutions in the UK and internationally.
