Accounting involves recording and analysing transactions to show their effects on the financial position of an enterprise; such data is essential in controlling its finances. But a manager must go further, and ‘read’ (interpret) accounting data accurately, and then use it wisely in planning and in controlling the operations of the enterprise and in decision making, which are all essential for its prosperity and survival. This Program does not train bookkeepers or accountants. It teaches modern managers to understand and/or control bookkeeping or accounting colleagues and subordinates, and to make effective use of available accounting data.

This Undergraduate Level 4 (Accounting and Finance) and Level 5 (Extended Diploma in Management) are a 240 credit course designed to fast track students to the final year of an associated Undergraduate degree in Finance and Accounting, which can either be completed at a UK university on campus or via distance learning.
