What will I learn?

Overview

You see yourself with a rewarding career in accountancy and finance. Our full-time degree, accredited by ACCA and CIMA, can make it happen. We know what it takes to be a financial director or an accountant, so you’ll be hands-on in our Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab in Chelmsford. Our Accounting and Finance course helps you build the skills and confidence you need to succeed.

You know that applying for jobs in the finance sector will be competitive so you want exposure to the platforms and methods that you’ll actually use not just now but throughout your career. Our Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab will ensure you get hands on with the relevant platforms, to strengthen your CV and be ready for your first graduate job. We believe the sooner you start, the more you’ll get out of it; that’s why we grant our finance students access to the Bloomberg suite from the first year.

With us, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the knowledge and tools you’ll need to launch a career in accounting and finance. Because there’s having access to facilities and software, and then there’s having the support to experiment with them.

Assessment

We will assess your work in a variety of ways including exams, coursework, essays and activity-based assignments. So expect, for example, problem-solving activities, consultancy projects, presentations, computer-based exams, a trading simulation portfolio and group or individual reports. You'll also be able to access support materials through our virtual learning environment (CANVAS).

Careers

We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it and they offer hands-on, practical opportunities to learn through work-based projects, internships or placements.

You could go on to become a practising accountant, or opt for a wide range of careers in industry, business and the public sector. You may find yourself working in a global corporation, a small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) or even for yourself - it’s not unusual for company CEOs to come from an accounting or finance background. Our graduates have moved directly into careers with prestigious Big Four auditors, such as Deloitte, and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC).

We work closely with professional bodies such as ACCA, Chartered Institute of Management Accounting (CIMA), Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA), Institute and Chartered Institute of Bankers (CIB) and the Association of International Accountants (AIA). This means that everything you learn will be highly relevant in today's commercial arena. On graduation, you’ll be able to apply for exemptions from these professional bodies.
