Bachelor Degree , Accounting And Finance

Course Description

This degree programme combines mathematical and statistical training with finance and accounting, including general financial theory and its applications in the world of business and commerce.

In your first year you’ll build a solid grounding across all areas of mathematics, probability and statistics, and explore the world of finance with modules in accounting and economics. Over your second and third years you’ll study statistics and applied mathematics, alongside management accounting and financial mathematics.

Joint teaching from the School of Mathematical Sciences and the School of Business and Management means you’ll learn from experts across both fields, and benefit from the support and facilities of two academic schools.

This programme gives you the option to extend your degree with a year in a professional work placement, or to study with one of our partner institutions abroad.
