**About This Course**

On the BSc Accounting and Management degree, you’ll gain the skills essential to working at the centre of a business’s decision-making, influencing its future direction and providing insight that drives a business forward.

Your degree will prepare you for a successful career as a Management Accountant, Management Consultant or Financial Director. You’ll learn the financial accounting skills needed to ask the right questions and collect and interpret the relevant information. You’ll also learn how to effectively present this information to decision-makers, and how to make recommendations and decisions of your own. You will take accountancy and management modules, learning important accountancy skills and management theories. You’ll also have freedom to design your own course, choosing from a wealth of optional modules so you can focus on the areas of management and accountancy that interest you most. For example, strategic management, resource management, HR management, financial accounting, audit, or tax modules.

On this course, you’ll develop your written and presentation skills, becoming a confident, passionate and persuasive communicator who can take complex accounting and financial information and present it in a way that’s simple, engaging and clear.

We have a Preferred Partnership arrangement with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) who hold regional meetings, which you are invited to attend. You will also be given free student membership with CIMA allowing you to access the most up-to-date management accounting research materials and latest job and internship opportunities.

You’ll graduate with full examination exemptions from the first two levels of the CIMA qualification. Depending on the modules you choose you’ll also have the chance to gain exemptions from other professional bodies, including the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, and the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants.

**Overview**

Prepare for a high-flying career as a Management or Company Accountant. Discover the technical knowledge and communication skills that could set you on the path to being a Management Consultant, a Financial Director or even a CEO.

This degree, offered by Norwich Business School (NBS), will prepare you to work in the heart of businesses and the decisions they make. You’ll learn how to influence the future of the businesses you’ll work in, coming up with new, value adding ideas, and presenting them in compelling ways. This is the day-to-day business of the Management Accountant, and you’ll get first-hand experience of it on this course.

Accounting and Management is a common route to the top of business, so if you have ambitions to go all the way, and if you don’t just love working with numbers but also with people, this degree is ideal.

You don’t need to have studied business before to thrive on this degree. You just need to be diligent, accurate, numerate and a keen communicator.

You don't have to be an accountant if you take this degree, but over half of graduates take a look at the rewards on offer for accountancy trainees and go into the job. Many others go into other parts of the finance industry as advisors or book-keepers, and some go into management or marketing. London is very popular for accountancy graduates going into their first job, but it's also quite common to work in Scotland, with Glasgow a perennial hotbed of Scottish accountancy recruitment. If you want to find a job in finance as an accountancy graduates, recruitment agencies were particularly important last year, so try to get in touch with one as soon as you can to improve your chances.
