University of Greenwich

Course Introduction

This degree will help you understand financial and management accounting, and how it affects planning, decision making and budget control.

The courses you will study will give you confidence in analysing and communicating information, so you can explain concepts and manage new projects. You will also learn to prepare financial reports and use software and systems. You will build these practical skills in lab exercises using Microsoft Excel, SAP ERP 6.0 and SAGE 50 Accounts software.

If you successfully complete relevant course options, you will be exempt from a number of exam papers leading to professional qualifications from ACCA, AIA, CIMA, CIPFA, CPA Australia, ICAEW and IFA. This will set you on the path to becoming a qualified accountant after university.

What careers could I pursue?

Graduates entering the accountancy profession may go into public practice by joining an accountancy firm. This can offer you the experience of working with multiple clients across various industries or the opportunity to specialise, for example, in auditing, stockbroking or consultancy.

Recent positions secured by our graduates include assurance associate at Grant Thornton, financial modeller at KPMG and counter risk trader at Barclays Investment Bank.
