This one year Certificate of Higher Education will attract applicants wishing to seek employment in the areas of business management, accounting and finance. It will equip graduates with the subject-specific skills and knowledge in both business management and accounting that will also underpin progression to professional qualifications, should the graduate wish to take this route. It will also equip graduates with the skills and knowledge to enter into a career within business management. The course is set to offer a coherent coverage of the main areas in itself:

• Business Management is concerned the with how organisations are formed and managed within a range of sectors, including initial funding, growth and cultures.
• Accounting is concerned with the provision of financial information for a variety of business purposes, including decision making, planning and controlling activities, performance measurement and external reporting.
• Finance is concerned with financial decision-making, asset pricing, risk management and the organisation and behaviour of financial markets.

The curriculum will be delivered in a modular approach, but with all learning coming together to form a coherent study scheme at each level. Students will also be supported in recognising the connections between modules and the progressive nature as they move through various levels.

Your UA92 degree goes far beyond the traditional academic experience.

Each academic year, in addition to your four subject modules, you’ll study an extra credit-bearing module, which focuses entirely on character and personal development. You’ll get to take on a real-life project, based on a live scenario, set by one of our industry partners.

You’ll experience first-hand the current issues facing the industry, get the opportunity to apply your subject knowledge, challenge your perspectives, step outside your comfort zone and build key employability skills to prepare you for your future career.

These experiences are instrumental in developing transferable skills and key competencies such as leadership, resilience and well-being, communication, problem-solving and team-working. To help you track your progress and further refine your developing skill-set, you’ll meet regularly with your own personal development coach throughout years 1 & 2.
