This conversion course is delivered by the Business School, which has AACSB accreditation in recognition of our focus on excellence in all areas. It’s something that fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide have achieved, so you can be sure you’re in good hands.
It’s ideal for graduates looking to change subjects or career direction, and is designed to give you a firm understanding of how organisations report their financial data. As well as helping you learn how to analyse data and draw conclusions from it, you’ll study how to help modern international corporations to accurately reflect environmental issues in their financial reporting.
This is an area of increasing importance in modern financial reporting, and a challenge that many companies are struggling to meet. By giving you this sought-after skillset, this course will help you to stand out from the crowd as an employee who can really make a difference to the businesses looking for graduates in this area.
Ultimately you’ll gain the transferable skills needed for a future career in accounting and finance. These include team working, objective analysis, and communication. You will also have the option to complete a 30-week work placement. The placement will help increase your employability even further. You can opt to take your placement in the UK or overseas, and in fact many large financial firms are located within Bournemouth.
