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.
A postgraduate degree in accounting will allow you to develop on your knowledge and skills gained at undergraduate level. Modules you study could include international finance, environmental accounting, advanced audit and taxation, SAS programming, and accountancy in the digital age.
