On this course you will focus on core theoretical and practical issues in accounting. You will learn how different contexts affect accounting and financial reporting, both internally and externally. A critical approach to key concepts is adopted alongside a grounding in the foundations of accounting. The course provides a socially-aware and ethical viewpoint and is appropriate for students with an interest in accounting as part of a broader business degree.
Accounting is a powerful modern discourse: accounting is implicated in and shapes many aspects of life. The extremes of corporate collapse and financial crises illustrate the impact of accounting. Accounting, however, is often taken for granted or ignored. It is rare to stop and consider: What is accounting? Accounting is the language of business and capital, and as such, we critically evaluate the preparation, use and social and political impact of accounting information, both within organisations and in external reporting.
This pathway encourages reflective, dialogic education, providing foundations for a career in business and entrepreneurship or a professional career in accounting by understanding the impact and scope of accounting within business, management, and society.
