Overview of the study programme
Sound management using financial and accounting techniques in a professional and ethical manner lies at the heart of every successful business. A properly organised and executed management process is the key for any company to achieve its operational and strategic goals. In this programme, you will develop a broad understanding of business activity, including specifically learning the tools and methods of finance and accounting, and how to apply them to real business situations involving management and decision-making.

Our Management and Finance degree has been designed intentionally to meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountant (CIMA). With an emphasis on learning through practice, it provides a solid foundation in management theory, systems and procedures in finance and accounting, developing your skills in complex design and analysis. You will learn to identify and structure the organisation's problems. You will be able to prepare high quality information for decision making by both internal and external stakeholders, as well as get to know contemporary principles of financial statement preparation, commonly accepted costing and management accounting methods, and the fundamentals of financial management.
