Accounting informs almost all areas of business, from strategy to outsourcing and operational planning to environmental policies. At Essex Business School, where this course is taught, accounting means more than cutting costs and managing transactions. It’s vital for ensuring accountability by encouraging sound, ethical decision making. This course will equip students with a firm understanding of the financial drivers underpinning business leadership, strategy, planning, governance and ethics. This course will explore both financial and management accounting and use case studies to apply theory to practice. Topics covered in this course are: preparation and analysis of financial statements; regulation in governing accounting practice; principles of cost accumulation; financial and management accounting theory; providing information to managers to assist their decision-making. The first year will cover subjects such as finance, management, marketing and economics. In the second and final years, students can choose from selected optional modules to tailor the programme to their accounting career aspirations.
