Overview

Understanding the financial world can lead you down many career paths, and a degree in Accounting and Finance can give you the best start.
If you are interested in current financial issues and are considering a career in either accountancy or finance, this course lets you sample the essentials of both disciplines to help you choose with interests you most.

Since almost every management job requires an understanding of budgeting and financial administration, this degree can open up much broader career opportunities as it will equip you with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills in financial management within a business context. As part of our focus on your career prospects, we will also help you develop the skills often quoted by employers as lacking in graduates – critical evaluation, self-direction and problem-solving – incorporating analysis, presentations and negotiation techniques into your studies.

Career opportunities

Our degree is designed to give you the practical skills and experience so that you can enter employment with the confidence to give sound financial advice and make effective financial decisions.

You’ll also benefit from a wide range of desirable professional skills, including: team working; critical evaluation; self-directed learning; problem-solving; action planning and organising; written and oral communication; presentation; questioning and listening. The following personal qualities will also be addressed in each of the skills modules: achievement orientation; initiative and creativity; self-confidence; decisiveness; reflectiveness; adaptability and flexibility.

On successful completion, you should be well placed to pursue a wide variety of careers in finance, management, accounting, banking, personal and corporate finance, business, marketing, education or IT in private, public and third sector organisations. Alternatively, this degree could set you on the path towards professional qualification as a Chartered Accountant, if you decide to follow specialist financial roles as an accountant, auditor, business analyst, investment consultant, stock controller or tax assistant.

Additionally, you may decide to continue your studies at postgraduate level to further enhance your employability. Here at Coventry, we offer the MSc Accounting and Financial Management and the MSc Professional Accountancy, which is designed to help prepare you for exams with the Association for Chartered Certified Accountants.
