Gain a solid grounding in core management areas. You’ll develop the knowledge and skills needed for a career in accounting, finance or business.
Year 1 covers the fundamentals of economics, finance and accounting. These core principles will provide context for the rest of your course.
From Year 2 onwards you’ll specialise in accounting and finance, with a range of compulsory and optional units. Compulsory units will equip you with the contemporary knowledge and skills you’ll need for a financial career. Final year units focus on advanced level accounting and finance.
After your first year, you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of optional units. These let you explore other areas of interest like entrepreneurship, investment banking or leadership.
In your final year, you can apply for our International Academic Exchange programme. You'll gain international exposure by spending a semester studying abroad at one of our partner business schools.
Professional Development Programme
Prepare for the career you want with our Professional Development Programme (PDP). PDP includes training and workshops to improve your skills in areas like:

If your course includes a placement, PDP will help you find a relevant role and make the most of your time there.
For three year (non-placement) courses, PDP is only available in Year 1.
We also offer this course with a placement year, giving you the opportunity to gain work experience as part of your degree.
