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. On this course you will critically evaluate the preparation, use and social and political impact of accounting, both within organisations and in external reporting.

Taught by our expert team of staff, this course will provide you with an excellent foundation for a career in business and entrepreneurship or a professional career in accounting. It will help you understand the impact and scope of accounting within business, management, and society.
