Why We Pair a BSc Accountancy Degree with Finance

It’s well known that the traditional role of accounting has a primary focus of daily management tasks. Financial reporting and recording of financial activity of businesses and corporations across the world. But it’s a field that risks becoming obsolete with the advent of artificial intelligence.

That’s why we pair our BSc Management Accounting distance learning degree fundamentals with the latest finance skills to ensure that our graduates present an expanded offering to their employers. Taking the information gained through traditional accounting practice, our BSc Finance and Accounting graduates will be able to critically analyze data to project future growth, analyze expenditures, and develop overarching strategies that drive a company’s finances. A marriage of professional principles and processes with financial strategy and control with the objective of policy and corporate influence.
