About Accounting and Finance, BSc - at De Montfort University

Kick-start your professional accounting career on a course that develops industry-ready graduates, with exemptions from professional body exams to speed up the process of becoming a qualified accountant. 

Gain core knowledge and skills with various modules covering topics such as Corporate Finance, where you will explore the main principles of corporate financial decision-making and their impact on real-world financial decisions. As you progress, Management and Strategy will come into play, introducing the theory and practical aspects of managing organisations and the people who work for them. Other modules include Audit and Forensic Accounting, Strategic Decision Management and Contemporary issues in Accounting.

Our Trading Room simulates what it’s like to work in the financial industry in trading, portfolio management, investment banking, corporate finance and financial or economic analysis.

Our close links with employers and professional accounting bodies will give you opportunities to enhance your career prospects. For example, depending on your module choices, you could gain exemptions from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the Certified Practicing Accountants Australia (CPA), the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Institute of Financial Accountants (IFA), the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and the Association of International Accountants (AIA).

Key features

  • Tailor your degree and develop specialist knowledge from one of our optional modules in your final year: Audit and Forensic Accounting or Contemporary Issues in Accounting. 
  • Benefit from Education 2030, where a simplified ‘block learning’ timetable means you will study one subject at a time and have more time to engage with your learning, receive faster feedback and enjoy a better study-life balance.
