Accounting, Finance & Economics courses

If you are inspired by the power of numbers and the impact that they can have on business decisions, then one of our Accounting and Finance degrees is for you. Or perhaps you are looking to excel in Economics, which covers a multitude of business disciplines? Either way, there is always global demand for highly skilled graduates in these fields.

Our Business School, which is home to our Accounting, Finance and Economics degrees, holds a number of esteemed accreditations. This includes accreditation by AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools – which places BU among the world’s top universities when it comes to business education.

Accreditations to kick-start your career

Each of our courses in this area is accredited by one or more industry body. The benefits of these range from membership of those bodies, to the opportunity to gain professional qualifications to help you get ahead. They also provide exemptions for accountancy qualifications, allowing you to reduce the number of exams you have to sit to become a Chartered Accountant.
