Abertay University Accounts


The appeal of an Accounting degree from Abertay is that we will ask you to think in different ways, to be creative and to really understand all aspects of the business world.  We believe that accounting can be an exciting career path.  Remember, many of the CEOs of major companies started out as accountants.
