Study Accounting Degrees

Accounting is the study of finance, mathematics, statistics and economics. These skills can be integral to growing and running a business, meaning that the skills of an accountant are extremely important. As well as dealing specifically with money, you will also have an intricate and expansive knowledge of how a business operates, as well as how to optimise the processes to make a business more profitable.

The modules you study might include financial reporting, corporate finance, economics for business, econometrics, financial markets, and business law. Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These could include lectures and seminars, as well as group projects. Depending on your course, you may also have the opportunity to take part in a work placement.
