Business is always changing. That's why we're not teaching the same things we were 10 years ago or even three years ago. We focus on strong links with industry, business and government so that our degrees reflect industry and student needs. We aim to develop professionals, managers and business leaders with critical thinking skills who will succeed in their chosen fields.

This degree provides a global study experience, personal mentoring and financial sponsorship, as well as the opportunity to gain real-world skills and work experience – all while seeing the world.
Accountancy is about providing useful (reliable, timely and accurate) information for decision makers, especially in relation to economic decisions. Whether in a multinational company, a government agency or public practice, accountants play a pivotal role in senior management of the financial performance and future direction of organisations. If you’re interested in business and have an aptitude for both logical and critical thinking, accountancy might be the right choice for you. It is a rather surprising key to success ... there are more Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of Fortune 1000 companies who are trained as accountants than there are from any other background.
Business is about the needs of both employers and society in a global business environment. Our courses draw on essential disciplines, such as Economics, Accountancy, Finance and Banking, as well as exploring a range of elective subjects that capture business-related interests, equipping you with knowledge to enhance business practices.
Economics is about the economy – the distribution of resources between people and organisations. Areas of interest to economists include the behaviour of consumers and business firms, the labour market, health care, the environment, technology and innovation, economic growth and development, monetary and fiscal policy, international trade and finance, and the global economy. Some of the most pressing problems of our time are economic problems, and our courses are designed to make our students the "solutions" to these problems.
Finance is a vital discipline for modern society since our economic life today is so strongly influenced by the management of money and capital. Powerfully interdisciplinary, our courses in finance combine economics, accounting, statistics, maths and policy studies in an intriguing and innovative manner. In practice, they incorporate maths, economics, statistics and accounting to provide a balanced view of money, the markets it works in, and the tools used to manage it. Modern finance is a combination of rigorous, scientific measurement and creative, practical problem-solving.
