The feature of this degree is to provide students with useful and relevant background in account and finance. This degree not only provides students with accounting techniques and focuses on computational skills with the aim of immediate application, but also enables students to evaluate the usefulness of their studies in different contexts and allows for them to further proceed into professional accounting and financial studies. The program is suitable for people who are interested in accounting and finance, accounting professions, investment banking, investment analysis and management, and etc.

Programme Objectives
This programme aims to set accounting and finance in a broader social science framework in order to:
  1. provide an undergraduate education at the forefront of the international field in the study of the theory and practice of financial management, control and accountability in organisations;
  2. situate the study of accounting and finance in some of the various contexts within which accounting and finance professionals play a key role;
  3. develop in students an understanding that not only is accounting and finance as a discipline concerned with computational skill but, more importantly, it is central to the way in which both management internally, and also various stakeholders externally (including investors, lenders, customers, the government and the public) perceive, understand, and seek to change and control the nature of organisations and the ways in which resources are allocated to and by them;
  4. foster in students a critical and flexible approach to accounting and finance issues, within a UK and international context;
  5. prepare students for challenging careers in accounting and finance and related sectors, as well as for higher degrees/research.
