Why take this course?

If you have successfully completed professional examinations of a major internationally recognised accounting body up to and including the penultimate (second-last) stage, this add-on honours degree may be of interest to you. The programme is based on practical, professional, employer-driven requirements. As a student, you will develop enhanced technical abilities and practical operational skills, complementing the success which you have already achieved in professional accountancy examinations and maximising your career prospects.

During this honours programme you will develop an advanced understanding of concepts, theories and practice. You will learn to conduct critical appraisals in the context of strategic business management and will develop skills of analysis, interpretation, evaluation and judgement.

The ability to work as part of a team and to take leadership and responsibility in a group setting are core workplace skills which will be enhanced throughout the year. You will learn to use interpersonal skills for the deployment of advanced techniques.

Research, analysis, interpretation and the recommendation of innovative solutions to problems are further skills that will be developed during this year. In particular, you will develop the capacity to conduct high-level qualitative and quantitative research and the strategic ability to analyse and interpret information.

Part of the skill-set you will develop on this programme is the ability to research current theories and practices, and to make recommendations on their strategic impact on an organisation in an accounting and finance context. Particular emphasis will be placed upon business ethics and corporate social responsibility.
