Business Management and Accounting

Why study at Roehampton

  • Lecturers have strong industry knowledge based on their own research, so you will learn about the latest developments in accounting within organisations
  • You will develop a clear understanding of the role and practices of a professional accountant
  • Strong industry contacts with companies such as Hobbs, Haymarket and Deloitte

Strong links with companies such as Haymarket, Marks and Spencer, Santander and Waitrose.

This course is ideal if you have an interest in accounting but also want to learn about how to manage a business. You will learn about the importance of accounting information within organisations and in external reporting, its social and political impacts and how it shapes many aspects of our lives. Accounting is the language of business and finance – so this course covers both the theoretical and practical accounting issues that apply to different business environments.

More details

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.

Example modules

  • Accounting For Organisations
  • Understanding Financial Statements
  • Managing Organisations

Career options

You can pursue jobs in business, financial services or accountancy. Graduates can follow pathways into accountancy via the main professional bodies in the UK, and bypass some of the foundation level examinations needed for qualifying as an accountant.
