Overview

This BSc Management Sciences and Accounting degree course has been created to give you an equal understanding of both subjects.

Management sciences applies a rational, analytical approach to management, to improve organisational performance. The associated decisions are frequently complex and entail considerable uncertainty, not least because of limited information, time and resources and the motives of different stakeholders. Using modelling, simulation and other analytical techniques, a management sciences approach can identify alternative strategies and guide practical action.

Accountancy is concerned with the provision and analysis of information for a variety of purposes. These include regulation, resource allocation, and a range of other decision making tasks, both within and outside an organisation. It is informed by a range of perspectives including those from economics, mathematics, behavioural and political science, psychology and sociology.
