Do you speak another language? If finance piques your interest too, then international accounting could be the ideal career path for you.
Successful completion of this ‘top-up’ programme will enable you to qualify to Bachelor’s level in Accounting and Finance, provided you already hold a Level 5 qualification – such as a Higher Diploma, BTEC or Foundation Degree – in a related field.
Primarily targeted at international students, it is designed with a specific focus on accounting and finance in an international context, incorporating the advanced study of at least one European language, to better prepare you for global careers in business, accountancy or financial management.
You can benefit from industry-standard facilities, including one of the largest academic trading floors in Europe, studying with around 5,000 students in one of the UK’s largest Business Schools. Rated ‘excellent’ by Eduniversal, we have close relationships with the leading professional bodies in the UK and are active members of the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) and Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS).
Offered to overseas students, this top-up course has been designed with specific emphasis on international accounting and finance. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach, which covers economics, business strategy, marketing, financial planning and accounting through a range of mandatory and optional modules.
An advanced module in English is mandatory, which aims to support development of your English skills to a higher level and with a focus on the language used in international business arenas. You will practise and learn how to write reports in a suitable academic style on recent accounting, finance and international business topics, such as recent financial crisis and Brexit, then present your findings to help build your confidence in communication skills.
You will consolidate your previous studies, while having the chance to develop the higher level skills needed for international business. For example, by examining real-life case studies in financial accounting, management accounting, financial theory and international finance, you will develop your analytical and critical thinking skills. We encourage you to adopt a problem-based approach to identify, analyse, apply and evaluate real-world business problems, such as the implication of globalisation and relevance of international/corporate social responsibility.
We will study how organisations interact with stakeholders within the external environment, identifying the different users of financial data and their varying needs, investigating the adequacy of information disclosure in corporate annual reports.
We will also look at some of the challenges facing financial management in an international context, such as overseas initiaI public offerings and variances of regional accounting standards. You will have the opportunity to gain experience in a range of accepted techniques and practices, like consolidation of financial statements and investment appraisal, learning how to apply them in different contexts, for example, evaluation of overseas investment opportunities.
Teaching is informed by research conducted by staff who specialise in the areas of international accounting standards, corporate social responsibilities and international finance and whose work has been published in peer reviewed publications, such as Research in International Business and Finance; the Journal of Financial Planning; International Review of Financial Analysis; and Journal of Investing.
